18. Almost as many as will be horsewhipped in some dusty Western town, the flesh cut from their bones...

Unfortunately, dreaming a fantasy that someone will be convicted, sent to prison for a smidgen of years (what's 5 to 10 when the payoff is billions?), and that a few meaningless fines will be levied seems satisfying and "civilized". But since every indication assures us that will never happen, permit me a more gratifying daydream, one where the imagined punishment fits the inexcusable crime.

After all, it's only make believe. Much like the concept of justice and punishment for the wealthy and connected.
