Quote of the Day (December 21, 2008)

December 21, 2008

Quotemarks"Just when we thought that reality couldn't hit a new bottom it did with Bernie Madoff, a smiling shark as sleazy as the TV host in "Slumdog [Millionaire]." A pillar of both the Wall Street and Jewish communities -- a former Nasdaq chairman, a trustee at Yeshiva University -- he even victimized Elie Wiesel's Foundation for Humanity with his Ponzi scheme. A Jewish financier rips off millions of dollars devoted to memorializing the Holocaust -- who could make this stuff up...?"

-- Frank Rich, "Who Wants to Kick a Millionaire?" (NY Times, Dec. 21, 2008)
