Boesky Furlough Proves Justice Truly Is Blind

December 17, 1989

It is with a degree of cynicism that I write this letter. On Nov. 16, a picture of poor Ivan Boesky appeared in the business section.

Hollywood buffs will immediately notice that his appearance bears some resemblance to the late great yachtsman and movie star, Sterling Hayden. Please note that clutched in the prison-hardened left hand is a pair of yachting deck shoes and jeans. In the right hand appears to be a soft bag, the type sailors use for weekend yachting.

Prison has indeed changed Mr. Boesky. Madam justice may be blind, but in white-collar crimes, she appears to have a taste for the good life.
