Before I continue with my photojournal entries, I want to paste in this amusing aside from the flamboyant UK historian David Starkey that appeared in The Guardian. He collects joke cards and this is his favorite:
A city fat cat reclin[es] in his desk chair saying "Oh sorry, I must have dialled my salary by mistake."
This is perhaps a little less funny in the wake of what happened last autumn. . . . But at least Madoff did get 150 years, even if regulatory measures don't seem to have done as much to rein in salaries, bonuses, and pension pay-offs as they were supposed to.
