#1 Anyone could write $82 million in bad cheques, hell, I could if I were home and near my chequebook. The trick is to get people to *accept* your bad paper, and that takes a significant long-con of apparent probity and good credit.

Was just thinking if he was a Bernanke-buddy he could use Bernanke's photocopier and stimulate the economy with this new wealth!

#7 Barbara, the bail amount was about one half of one percent of what he just stole through fraud. Check, cash, or gold bars, that's either stupidity or malfeasance.

#8 Once I was arrested, Bail was certified check, no cash, nothing else. (And the bail bondsmen were livid that I had My brother do it, for cash, got the certified check at Wall Mart, paid him back and all was well, the Bail Bondsmen have a racket there, interest is staggering.)
