What would it be like to be on the lam for 16 years? How would you feel if you were bilking your closest friends -- and their closest friends for all of their life savings? Wouldn't you just once like to push someone around and get your own way even if it wasn't just? How do you stop a crime that you have to keep committing so that you aren't caught?
Believe me: I have no sympathy for either of these criminals, but I admit that I find thinking about their lives interesting. Not particularly proud of that, I'm not alone.
