Madoff’s 150

So it’s the talk of the town at the moment. As much as 150 is a lot of years, it doesn’t sound like justice to me. Rather, it sounds stupid. Are they going to keep his corpse when he dies in the cell to fulfill the 150 years? Some argue it’s to signal that he’s punished to the full extent but that in no way makes it more comforting for his victims. He can perhaps be in jail for 10% of the time provided he returns the investments and I bet the victims would be happier that way. They probably would not even care if he’s set free tomorrow as long as they get back what they own!
