In Prison, Madoff Is A Hero

In the outside world, Bernie Madoff is reviled. Inside prison, he’s a hero, admired for his stunning successes.

They fawn over him, badger him for info on how he pulled it off, and “groupies” follow him around the track when he exercises. “Everybody was trying to kiss his ass,” one former inmate told NYMag.

Aw, he’s finally among his kind: murderers, sex offenders, drug lords and mobsters. Guess the Devil finds hell a pretty cozy place too.
