Who Gives a Crap About Madoff?

We’re in the midst of a multi-trillion dollar “Oh Shit” on a federal economic level, precipitated in no small part by financial services giants, none of which will spend a second in the Municipal Correctional Center. But we give a crap that Bernie Madoff left his rings and watch at home because he’s spending the night in the tank?

Do people really care, or is this another invention of the national news media? If we care, is it because we think it really matters in the long run, is it just another fetish like the Runaway Bride, or is this a catharsis?
