http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-...llion-in-biggest-madoff-fraud-settlement.html I did not see this happening. The "heart attack" in the swimming pool seemed all to convenient. I had figured whoever was left with with this repository of madoff loot was scot free. The notion that Picower did not know it was a Ponzi scheme (or at least something illegal) is not possible given the "souped up" returns he was getting relative to the other Madoff customers that were ludicrous both in % return and dollars pulled out. Madoff: The emperor had no clothes and his swinging c*ck was urinating on the little people, yet no one dared to look. Truth hides in plain sight when the powerful do not want the public to notice their crimes. How dare a peon question the mighty Maddoff! This is a general lesson that must be understood: Prestige, not truth, drives events for much longer than people realize.
