Bernie Madoff, Deserving Victim 

Bernie Madoff, $50 billion fraudster, may have been beaten up in prison.

Despite those denials, the WSJ reports today that three sources familiar with the situation told the paper that an attack did indeed occur against Madoff at the hands of another inmate.

I’m left to wonder why the Wall Street Journal has so many prison sources. Or perhaps the question should be phrased differently – why are so many of the Wall Street Journal’s sources in prison?

One of Madoff’s lawyers, Ira Sorkin…did not comment on the allegations Madoff suffered a beating, telling the WSJ, “I don’t comment on prison conditions or his family. That’s my policy.”

Why would anyone need such a policy?

Anyhow, you might be wondering if it’s OK to be amused by this story. I want to assure you that it’s not only acceptable, it’s encouraged.
