Biz: Ruth Madoff has a buttload of money separate from Bernard’s. Really?

  • $45 million amount Ruth has in bonds, which are “unrelated” to her husband’s massive alleged Ponzi scheme. Oh boy.
  • $17 million amount Ruth has in cash. We imagine it’s probably organized in rolls of pennies in her lavish Manhattan apartment. source

Biz, U.S.: CNBC’s Rick Santelli: He’s Internet famous now

  • 1.7 million Internet viewers can’t be wrong! Santelli, who went on a memorable (though polarizing) tirade against Obama’s foreclosure plan on Thursday, has drawn millions of viewers and a White House response to all that stuff he said. Press secretary Robert Gibbs bluntly proclaimed that Santelli “doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” Which should be a compliment to him at this point. Who knows? He may get his Chicago Tea Party yet. source
