Jewelry designer Alexandra Story lost her life savings to Bernie Madoff, but she wasn’t expecting to appear on the list that was widely published yesterday. “I told my friends about Madoff but it’s not like I took out an ad about it,” said Story, who, the Post notes, estimated her loss at just under $1 million. Question: Is posing for a picture in the Post and telling them how much you lost the same as taking out an ad, or very different? [NYP]
Judging by this speech, that may be true.
