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.

The Diocese of St. Thomas lost nearly $2 million on investments made with disgraced Wall Street financier Bernard Madoff, most of which represented endowment funds for youngsters at two Catholic elementary schools in St. Croix, the poorest of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
