The 71-year old Bernard Madoff isn’t going to appeal his 150-year sentence, it turns out.

“We won’t be appealing the sentence,” Madoff’s lawyer, Ira Sorkin, said Thursday. He declined to say why the decision was made.

How about the fact that a successful appeal could well get the sentence cut, I don’t know, maybe in half?

Maybe even by two-thirds?

Yeah.  Would not have been the brightest use of stolen money.

(More on sentences of this nature at Colin Samuels’ new blog, by the way.)
