A few tasty quotes:

On prison life:
“I see it as a temporary vocation.” To which he adds, “I quickly developed alliances with the Mafia people, Black says, then the Cubans. I was friendly with the ‘good ol’ boys’ and the African-Americans. They all understood I had fought the system, and I do believe I earned their respect for that.”

On how he will survive after his release: “I can live on $80 million. At least I think I can”

On publicly held companies: “The regulators, the minority shareholders, all that crap. Oh, I can’t stand it.”
