NYC (AND BEYOND): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:
Okay, I know I've gotten a little off POCKET LINT topic lately, BUT how fantastic is this Daily News story about Queens construction worker, Ralph Amendolaro, who bought a lottery ticket based on Madoff's prison number and won $1,500?
Of course, I loved this guy instantly. And I love him even more now that I read his thoughts on how he imagined Madoff would react to the win, "He'll probably look to charge me on the investment that I made off him. He'll probably want a cut."
Wise words, Ralphie boy. Wise words.
Ralph intends to celebrate his wife's bday in style with a his winnings because he's not a disgusting piece of shite like Madoff.
I was feeling a bit burnt out today (is that going around?), but this just totally cheered me up. Thank heavens for small favors.
