Madoff: Prison's Mr. Congeniality

It's no luxury apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side, but prisoners who served time with Bernie Madoff say the Ponzi schemer is doing well adjusting to prison life. According to the Wall Street Journal, some prisoners have tried to get close to him in the hopes that he'll reveal some previously unknown stash of money that they could acquire. Others are just impressed with the audacity of his crimes. "To every con artist, he is the godfather, the don," one recently released inmate told the WSJ. "All things considered, he's OK," Ira Sorkin, Madoff's lawyer, told the Journal. "He still suffers deeply for what he did."
