Clever guy. When I read of criminal's "careers" it always seems like they went to a lot of trouble for very little and could have made much more money more easily with a real job. Read the book "The Brinks Job," for example. You'd think that the criminals would have benefited from the $4 million... they never got to spend any of it. The book also describes the life of a burglar -- not fun, constant stress, hard work, and not profitable. The sad thing is that these people cause so much damage ... and they're not thinking through what they will get out of it, which is normally just legal costs and a trip to jail. Now... AIG executives... that's the way to make real money if you're a psychopath anyway and don't give a crap about your fellow man.

Doesn't anybody want to question why they conducted their own internal investigation and found themselves to not have any culpability? Usually a department would investigate it themselves but have a 3rd party investigate it on the side, like Michigan State Police or Dept of Corrections. Something smells here.

Odd. The last post I made said I'm in Little Rock, AR. Not even close. I'm in Hersey, MI.

It's messed up the town I'm located in before, but never the state.
