    Good editorial. He is absolutely correct. Everyone is born evil. We must learn to be good.

    Oh, and the Jews don't have to worry about Hell. It DOES exist whether they want to believe in it or not.

    Contrary to the popular adage, you CAN cheat an honest man.

    The fact that many of the people Madoff swindled thought they were insiders who deserved to make a huge profit when the rest of the world wasn't, while somewhat satisfying to some of us to read about, ignores the fact that many people had no idea their money was with Madoff.

    The man (and many of his victims) are the poster children for everything that's wrong with this nation.

    That's a dumb editorial. No, we are not "all Bernie Madoff." Most of us are either too honest or not clever enough to do what he did. Yes, people are bad. But most of us draw the line at ACTUALLY killing our boss. We only fantasize about it.

    I don't believe people are born evil. People make choices as to whether they will be good or evil. Sometimes good people make bad choices, but those who constantly make bad choices become evil.
