Apparently this consultant, name of Larry Levine, makes a living teaching well-heeled white-collar criminals how to game the federal corrections system so that the incarceree gets to share a cell with Tarquin the insider-trader, not with DeShawn the enforcer for Tarquin’s cocaine supplier.

Observations:  (1) Is this a great country or what?  (2) Bernie Madoff’s people need help gaming the system? Say what?
