Madoff-ed Alexandra Penney is now blogging and it is Really Awful
For those of you who don't know the story, one of the people who was allegedly defrauded by Madoff's giant 50 billion dollar ponzi scheme, is now writing a blog about it. It's called the 'bag lady papers' and it is so bad you can't miss it. The owner of a 5th avenue apartment and an artist loft in SOHO now writes about her anxieties about being poor. She has a remarkable ability to render even the most sympathetic reader immediately hostile with her callous observations about the poor and what life will be like for her if she can't move among the super elite. It's being blogged in The Daily Beast under the title 'the bag lady's papers'. The real story is the vitriolic posts being attached to the story--and their debates about class and how America should feel about Penney's plight.
