Bitchy commentary at the NY Times:


...and I love it.

The rest of the display looked like samplings from your typical high-end Westchester estate sale: the inevitable framed Henri Cartier Bresson poster, the crocodile purse, the bland dishware from the beach house, some primitive art that the purchasers probably described to their friends as “funky” when they bought it years ago.

HERE.

*yawn* Given billions, I'd be so much more creative. Banality of evil is right.

LOVED IT TOO. TACKY, TERRIBLE HIDEOUS PEOPLE.
THEY CRAWLED OUT OF A DRAIN. NO CONSCIENCE, NO TASTE, NO NOTHING OF VALUE.

EWWW!
IMAGINE CHEATING ELIE WEISEL.......ONE OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY'S TRUE HEROES. AND HIS FOUNDATION. NOT TO MENTION ALL THE PEOPLE WHOSE LIVES THEY RUINED.

I HOPE HE LIVES A REALLY LONG TIME IN THAT CELL.
AND I HOPE RUTH'S PICTURE WITH THAT HAT AND THAT MARKET BASKET IS PUT ON A LOT OF BILLBOARDS THAT SHE WILL SEE OFTEN. FOREVER.

YUCK.

This trait came up in another profile I read about the Madoffs. Someone went to one of their sons' bar mitzvahs, and he said it was very nice, but nothing super-fancy and showoffy. They did not live like Trumps (or, conversely, like Astors).

His one extravagance was shoes, oddly.

Love it and love the Westchener or whatever here name is comment-- What do people like about her decors? Okay, she has a few elements every once in a while that are great-- if you look through the visual jungle to find something.
YUK- I hate her stuff!

Thank you.

Good writing. The first line says it all: "They came to see evil. Instead, they found a creamer shaped like a cow."

I'm feeling big time schadenfreude.

I don't know what I expected, but given the caliber of greed and deceipt it wasn't anything cow shaped.

Another NYT article that lets everyone walk away feeling better about themselves ("Well, if *I* had all that money, *I* would buy something nicer than posters and bland dishware!").

It brings out the elitist in people while letting them declare their hatred of greed.

they're not even tasteful or discerning in their greed.

Hey Penelope, I don't mind the caps, it makes it easier for some of us to read. And you spelled everything correctly, which is more than some people do.

Bottom line: These people are trash.

Aw shit. I got fifty-eleven pieces of funky, primitive art all up in my place. AND a crocodile purse (pending successful ebay bid of $26whole US dollars.) AND I'm commenting a full year after this post. Lame levels are at a high.
