This morning FoxNews.com actually reported on the fact that Bernie Madoff got into a prison fight. It wasn’t really much of a fight – mostly a shouting match with another senior citizen that resulted in a couple of shoves. Personally, I think every inmate should get to line up and punch Madoff in the face every morning and every evening. I also think it’s ridiculous that this even got reported. But what really got me was this:
this was the first known physical altercation at the slammer for Madoff — who paid a consultant for a crash course in prison culture and survival tips before he was locked up.
Really? He paid for prison training? There are consultants for that? I’m about to proclaim myself the expert on everything from mass transit navigation and survival to holiday shopping for Mom. You’ll be getting my bill.
And yes, I forgot to call my mother for her birthday this morning. Happy birthday, mom.
