What, Ted? Do you like to speed on the Turnpike or profit from the sale of unprofitable IPOs?

Marvin,


I love this.  You have risen to the heights.  I say this despite the fact that I personally like Jon Corzine, a fellow with whom, wealth aside, I have much in common.

Cheers,

Ted.

Marvin -- good stuff, so funny.

I have this weird feeling that Corzine is stalking me. First, I lived in New Jersey, he became the governor and jacked up my taxes. I attempted to flee to the Mountain West, but I had money it in a broker that was gobbled up by MF Global -- which was then taken over and destroyed by Corzine.

How do I escape this guy?

You'd hope Corzine would find this the perfect time to retire. But more than likely, a friend will find him a spot on a board or two, or even a spot on an executive team. Worse yet, imagine if he tries to get back into politics. As a reformer!

You're right Broadway. How long will it be before Corzine pops up in some shiny new role? Odds are it won't be in a prison jumpsuit, either.

One way to punish the MF Global people would be to make them go work for AIG on a government clerk's salary. Let them write flood insurance policies in Louisiana, or homeowners policies for RVs in tornado alley. Something excruciatingly dull, unprofitable and demoralizing for the last sham collapsed corporation where no one got punished for misdeeds. No white collar criminals really ever get "cracked down" upon. Nowadays, they don't even have to eat their losses.

It would be nice if we really saw a crack down on those responsible for the whole MF Global deal, but more than likely it will be a slap on the wrist then back off to the country club for another gin and tonic......

Tenacious.

Thanks for mentioning the two most corrupt states in the Union in the same breath.The very fact that Corzine comes from these states makes things easier to understand and especially the fiasco he planned at MF Global.

Regards

Ashish.

Cat tail,

You are right - what happened at MF Global is unacceptable. So let's see if anyone is held responsible for this.
