Prison is for Other People

I don't think so

Those misunderstood financial titans, Madoff and Stanford (Porlock passim), probably didn't enjoy Christmas much this year. Bernie discovered that if you put a sociopath and a psychopath in an enclosed space, it's usually the former that gets the kicking, whilst ex-Sir Allen drummed up tear jerking letters from his family to the court, in an attempt to find a more conducive environment than the downtown Houston Federal Detention Center in which to study seven million documents with "Guilty" written on them.
Victor Scarano, a Houston psychiatrist and lawyer who offers detailed bio-psycho-social-spiritual evaluations, examined Stanford in jail, and concluded “If the present set of circumstances persist, Mr. Stanford's spiraling downhill course will continue to the point where he will suffer further serious physical disorders and, more likely than not, a complete nervous breakdown.”

What does getting soaked feel like?

Bernie's battering, although in itself a widespread prison tradition, is yet another example of individual personal violence being dealt on the rich, odious and famous.

Ratzinger Rushed Off his Feet

From the Belfast Telegraph just now,(slightly edited)

A woman jumped barriers and knocked down Pope Benedict XVI at Christmas Eve Mass, a Vatican spokesman has said.

The sudden commotion in St Peter's Basilica happened as the pontiff walked down the main aisle to begin the traditional ceremony. As the procession made its way towards the altar, gasps rang out through the public and a commotion could be seen among a group of clergymen.
The procession came to a halt and bodyguards rushed to the trouble spot and filled the "demented woman" (they're everywhere) full of bullets.
The Pope appeared unhurt and continued calmly on his way to start the Mass.


Earlier, it was decided that The Midnight Mass become the Ten O'clock Mass in order to:
a) give the Sacred Father more sleep before opening his presents

b) help him clear his head of the recurring nightmares before Absolving Himself of Guilt

c) allow his Cardinals extra time out on the piss
