My very first blog... Here goes everything.

The very first sentence is always the hardest to write. I've been told by many a person that after all is written, go back and check the first line. Rewrite if necessary. This post might not make it past the second posting... Here it goes...

Bernie Madoff... Just hearing the name sends chills down my back. He's a walking, talking, swindling PR nightmare. I was thinking on how to improve his image. At this point, I don't think it is possible. He will go down in history as one of the worst PR disasters the US has ever seen (right next to the Valdez disaster). I've gotta feel sorry for the guy. The government just seized his Florida vacation home. He still has a few left, thank goodness. Did they have to take his yachts (yes, plural), though? Sad day... Not really.

I've enabled comments. What do you think?


  1. Madoff may get Ponzii off the notorious swindler list. :P

    I have another blog, by the way: cougartex.blogspot.com

  2. Is this not a first? The rich always hide their wealth with their spouse or children so it is protected. I am glad the government is seizing his assets. After what he did to dozens or even hundreds of people is dispicable. This happened to your grandpa if you remember.

  3. It's a good thing, he hurt alot of people. People should not be allowed to hide their wealth with others, i.e. spouses and children and remain untouchable. Something similar to this happened to your grandpa.

  4. Clarification: The Valdez distster refers to the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the CEO's reaction, or not so much of a reaction, to the incident.
