    I can't think of too many more deserving persons than Blankfein; however, around these parts, joking about prison rape is donut-worthy.

    Please read this diary and reconsider. I'll circle back and look for your response.

      system and I know all about prison sex.  Of all types.  Male guards, inmate, female guards etc.  The human monkey has more sex than any other monkey species.  It exists in prison.  Get over it or change the system.

      In Hawaii, I was one of the first HIV_AIDS trained prison educators certified to work with prisoners in an educational setting about many of these issues.  I could tell you stories that would make you cry as I still do when I think about my time inside.

      But all that does not change my opinion that I think my remarks were not pointedly ugly, but rather diffused and you are being too thin skinned in either defending your own sensibilites or the ideas of others.  

      And all I think my comments were rather benign when you consider the reality of prison life.  

      The purpose of my comment was not to "joke about rape" but rather to say that this person will now have his life controlled by others and I think that is good.  He is a total user and to use a commonly permitted sexual metaphor, has been rapacious in his lust for money and power.

      So, sorry if I offended you.  And perhaps you are right the para above in bold might have been less offensive to your highly tuned sensibilites.
