Former Madoff Employees’ Suffering Can Be Compared to Only One Thing


The day Bernie Madoff was arrested, employees tell Jerry Oppenheimer, author of the purple-prose spectacular Madoff With the Money, was the day their innocence was lost. There would be no Christmas bonuses, they slowly realized. No expensive presents from Ruth under the office Hanukkah hedge. Imagine the devastation they must have felt! The sudden feeling that nothing was safe anymore! “As one longtime employee sadly observes, ‘12/11 was our own 9/11.’” Wow. [WSJ]
