Dear Mr. Obama.

I just read that Bernard Madoff, who is under house-arrest in New York, is being guarded 24-hours a day by security guards paid for by his wife, Ruth.

I have a wish this holiday season, a wish I herewith forward to the Obama administration and to all state governments: Let's try to construct a system of equal justice for all. If Madoff has really liberated $50 billion from its original owners, he is probably bigger than the Mafia. Why a separate set of legal strictures for him and other celebrity felons. Why is he under house arrest on his 5th and 64th Street palace rather than Rikers?

Let's take back America.

if a hungry homeless person steals a hot dog you'd be certain he would not be kept in house arrest in his cardboard box. Or smoke a joint on the street and see what happens. There is no justice, and never will be. But we can try to keep it as fair as possible. As you say; Take back America. She's been robbed and raped a little too often and too blatantly recently
