Don't read this article because it will drive you crazy

I don't want to recommend that you read Joe Nocera's article in the New York Times because it will only get you all foamy in the mouth.

A man goes to jail for boasting to an attractive IRS employee on a fishing trip about taking a liar loan. There seems to be no proof that he actually lied; the broker who testified against him in trial is now in jail for fraudulently changing mortgage applications. Meanwhile, the CEOs of the companies who knowingly made liar loans and employed those fraudulent brokers get golden parachutes. The other thing that got me going is how the whole prosecution seemed to be motivated by envy. The small fry go to jail but the really big fry buy off the politicians by giving them multi-million dollar jobs after retirement.

Don't read the article. It will only make you mad.
