Sometimes It's Life That's Black & White

"If you want to feel rich, just count the things money can't buy."


Bernie Madoff plead guilty in a New York court today, he was immediately remanded into custody to await sentencing on the 11 charges against him. This is one of those rare cases that test my compassion when it comes to handing out justice. A lot of folks saw their life savings wiped out because of Madoff. He's 70 years old, and he will more then likely die in prison... alone. He did to himself.


Take The Long Way Home
By Supertramp

So you think you're a romeo
Playing a part in a picture show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

Cos you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery
All the greenery is coming down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you're part of the
Furniture oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
You take the long way home
And take the long way home

And when you're up on the stage it's so unbelievable
Unforgettable, how they adore you
But then you're wife seems to think you're losing your sanity
Oh, calamity, is there no way out?

Does it feel that your life's become a catastrophe?
Oh it has to be for you to grow boy
When you look through the years and see what you could have been
What you might have been
If you'd had more time

So when the days comes to settle down
Whose to blame if your not around?
You took the long way home
You took the long way home

"When I began the Ponzi scheme I believed it would end shortly and I would be able to extricate myself and my clients from the scheme," he said. "However, this proved difficult, and ultimately impossible, and as the years went by I realized that my arrest and this day would inevitably come."
