It's always fun to read about American fraudster Bernie Madoff -- mostly because he's one of the few headline acts of the GFC who didn't get away with it. This week's piece in New York Magazine gave us a glimpse into Bernie's South Carolina jail cell. Based on interviews with Madoff's fellow inmates, NY Mag reports that the billion-dollar conman is now a prison "celebrity" who is "past apologising" for his crimes:

He does maintenance work for 14 cents an hour, shares a dinner table with an obsessive-compulsive criminal named Muscles and pays a fellow prisoner to do his laundry for $8 per month.

One fellow convict, bank robber KC White, claims Madoff is scornful about those who lost money in his corrupt Ponzi scheme.
