I post this story here because of the amount of Madoff
's theft, though this almost belongs in Weird News Stories. It's name is pronounced (supposedly) "may-doff
It will always be MAD off
Now this one for the moment is the king-of-all-media-skin-bag-full-of-sh!t
. Madoff's stolen statue returned with a 'lesson'
PALM BEACH, Fla. Thieves calling themselves "The Educators" have returned a statue stolen from disgraced investment guru Bernie Madoff. And they hope he's learned his lesson.
The Palm Beach Post reports that the $10,000 copper sculpture turned up Wednesday near the country club Madoff (MAY'-dawf) belonged to.
A note attached read: "Bernie the Swindler, Lesson: Return stolen property to rightful owners. Signed by The Educators."
The statue was reported missing Dec. 22, about a week after the Wall Street money manager was arrested on charges he bilked investors out of more than $50 billion. His clients included major banks, charities and retirees... http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090101/ap_on_re_us/madoff_statue
