Bernie Madoff has had some rough times in prison, but he doesn't blame the facility to which he's been sentenced. To the contrary, he told The Wall Street Journal's Sital Patel the Butner Federal Correction Complex was "very laid back," and a bit like a "camp." He went on to rave, "This is as good as it gets," and said the Federal Bureau of Prisons would "put you where you will survive." Sounds alright, depending on how much you liked camp.
