People who know a bit about my family history could probably appreciate what I was thinking when Glenn Close as Patty Hewes was taking a deposition from Lily Tomlin as the wife of the fictionalized Bernie Madoff character. I’m paraphrasing … Patty asks the wife something like, “You lived with this man for 40 years. He stole $70 billion. And you’re telling me you didn’t know anything about it?”

My mom would have been 82 years old today.
