IBJ.com – Indianapolis Business Journal – USVI diocese loses $2 million in Madoff scheme

Wish I believed in hell.  Madoff could go there and clear burning Bushes.

Roman Catholic schools in the U.S. Virgin Islands will have to turn away parents seeking financial aid for their children because of losses in a multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, church officials said Wednesday.
