As a very senior citizen who has been to a few horse races and a county 
fair, I've never read about so many crooks in my life - all millionaires.

After Kenneth Lay of Enron who owned five homes and I hear every new car 
made, now comes Scott Sullivan the financial adviser for WorldCom that's 
practically broke - and he got $3 million for a Christmas bonus and is 
building a home in Boca Raton, Fla., right on the coast that is costing $33 

Then they say what's wrong with our young people? I say nothing is wrong 
except they see the crooks of our country stealing the people blind and 
getting their hands spanked for it.

Yet our jails are full of young kids for dealing marijuana, and these rich 
millionaires are the biggest crooks walking the face of this earth at this 

I heard a banker say it may be the banks in America hurt next because of 
all the theft. No, young people, it's not you who are the problem: It's the 
crooks walking around in $900 dollar suits, and getting away with it 
because they're rich.
