Madoff suicide

Re: “Bernie Madoff’s son found dead in apparent suicide,” Dec. 11, 2010.

If the tragic news of son Mark’s suicide draws Bernie Madoff down into a pit of grief, remorse, and recrimination, this will be a good thing, however painful. It will mean the disgraced financier still retains  
some humanity. If his reaction is mild, then we’ll know he’s beyond redemption; a heart of darkness. What’s also tragic is a lot of us would not be surprised to learn that, in fact, he received the news of the suicide with equanimity.
