Who Said Money Can't Buy Everything?

It can apparently buy one's freedom. This alert just in from The New York Times:

Madoff to Remain Free on Bail With New Restrictions

A federal judge on Monday rejected the prosecution's request to revoke Bernard L. Madoff's bail and send him to jail. Instead, the financier, who is accused of running a huge Ponzi scheme, will remain under house arrest in his luxury apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side, guarded by private security guards paid for by his wife.
What do you think your odds are of receiving the same treatment?

I sent you an email, but in case
someone else is interested:
Here are the links to the RSS feeds, in regular format (I guess) and Atom format, which I think is proprietary. You should be able to click one of these links and subscribe, or put it into Google Reader, or whatever the preferred method.

Thanks for your interest!

The feed link is at the bottom of the blog's home page, where it says "Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)." However, when you look at individual posts, that link isn't there -- just one to subscribe to the post's comments. Might be able to fix this in the blog's template. Er, maybe.

Thanks for the info. We'll take care of it soon I hope.

Now that I am past the "how to follow your blog", don't we remember when Jimmy Crosby, aka DOC Correctional Secretary walks out of Federal Court after being found quilty and told to come back in 30 days to start to serve his sentence. Nothing surprises me anymore.
