Any recording that begins with this ...
"Obviously, first of all, this conversation never took place. ... OK?"
... has to be interesting.
As CNN's report shows, the tape-recorded conversation of swindler Bernard Madoff offering advice on how to fool the feds is stunning:
The recording, made in 2005, was released by Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin. Madoff was coaching a potential witness who was going to be talking to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As the AP reminds us:
The 71-year-old Madoff was sentenced in June to 150 years in prison for masterminding a multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme that spanned decades and defrauded thousands of investors.
