And again I'm not a hater, I was with more girls than boys in college but then I married a man because, duh, that's the normal thing to do. I love dh, but I probably find 70% of women under 50 attractive, and probably only 20% of men. But still I married a man.

    The Koch brothers, Charles and David, moved $2billion overseas that they managed to make from Madoff before his scheme collapsed. Most of that involved transfers from funds that were operated by Fairfield Greenwich Group.
