Tales of three women

Elegant Elinor

Elinor Krach, 86, had her motorized wheelchair stolen outside a New York City church, where she had stopped in to chat with the minister. The chair was worth about $1,000, she told a newspaper reporter. But Elinor tried not to get too upset or angry because she has a weak heart.”It’s just not worth it,” she said. “Nobody’s sick. I didn’t get hit by a car. You have to look at things that could have been. For my own sake, I just try to make peace with it.”

What creeps who would steal a wheelchair. What an intelligent woman!

Two not- so-intelligent-women were recently indicted for their roles in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. JoAnn Crupi worked for the cheat for 25 years and Annette Bongiorno for more than 40 years. Annette stole over $14 million from 1975 to 2008 and JoAnn received more than $2.7 million in 2008 alone. If convicted, they’ll spend the rest of their lives in prison.

Indicted Annette

How could these women come under sicko Bernie’s spell and knowingly help him steal other’s money, not to mention steal it for themselves? After enjoying a lifestyle they didn’t deserve, they’re not going to enjoy one they richly deserve.

PS Joanne is 49 and has two young children. What a way to spend her FOF years.

    OK..let’s get real here. Those two women worked in an industry where they saw that people who played fast and loose with regulations, rules and personal morality made the big bucks. People who were good, kind, toed the line? Zip. In addition, many many people who work in that industry believe that they are much much smarter than the rest of us, that they deserve to make the big bucks and that the rest of us do not and if we get ‘fleeced’ then we deserve that. And we see headlines in the news all the time now about the big banks and how they not only trashed their customers, they trashed the other banks that they sold those repackaged garbage mortgages to, AND they bet against the market so that they made money no matter what. Anyone who somehow avoided getting involved with that sort of stuff must be a saint.
