    But I thought he had nothing to do with it, innocent bystander, yada yada yada

    The sons are still under investigation. And most of the lawsuits include the sons.

    Would that the Old Douchbag possessed a parallel sense of shame.

    Hari-Kari, baby.

    Sons were just hit with massive lawsuit yesterday. Neither can find jobs, either -- at least not in their preferred line of work.

    And who would hire them in that industry again? Either they were ignorant dupes who couldn't figure out what was going on in their own company despite their high ranking, or they were in on it.

    No problem getting on with FedEx this month, if you're muscular and can read local maps.

    Hara-Kiri is much more effective.

    Obviously he lived a career and an incredible lifestyle based on a fraud. But they have had two years and neither he nor his brother were implicated in the scheme.

    Sorry, I can't find any joy in someone hanging themselves with a child in another room. Someday that kid's gonna know.

    They may not have been implicated, but they were sued for nearly a billion dollars yesterday.
