TINY VIOLIN

Madoff: I Suffer More Than My Victims

The man behind history's greatest Ponzi scheme says he's in greater pain than his victims. Bernie Madoff emailed NBC News to say the pain he caused so many is "nothing" to the pain he suffers from losing his children. “As difficult as it is for me to live with the pain I have inflicted on so many, there is nothing to compare with the degree of pain I endure with the loss of my son’s Mark and Andy.” Mark committed suicide in 2010, 46, two years after his father’s arrest. Andy, 48, died last September while battling cancer. “I live with the knowledge that they never forgave me for betraying their love and trust.”
