    Carole (his wife) said....”They have destroyed our lives, we are scarred forever," she said of Ghosn's accusers in a November interview with Bloomberg Television. "It's been the hardest year of my life."

    Oh, boo hoo. Want an easier life? How about not breaking the freaking law? That might make things easier....good Lord.

    Indeed. She marries a crook and then complaints that she had a tough year.

    *Carole voice*

    But...but...I’m RICH!!

    Seriously though, Carlos got a good one. Not many spouses would be this level of “ride or die” for their significant other.

    It's what all wealthy people do. Play the victim. Harvey using a walker. They really begin to freak out when they finally get caught and the circle is tightening. They both broke the law, sorry but no sympathy here.

    Being from New England, this scene was rather nostalgic. It reminded me of all those occasions where various and sundry organized crime figures were seen on regional TV feigning illness / infirmity as they were being escorted to and from courts and jails.

    When I was working at a hospital in upstate NY, we once had a patient who was admitted with “chest pains”. And he was under police custody. Turns out, he was a pedophile who became “overwhelmed” while being arraigned in court and started complaining that he was having chest pain and said he was having a heart attack...he was not. He was simply having a “change of lifestyle” event. We cleared him, and back to court he went. :p

    “...for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, in jail or in hiding...”

    Its called stress. Those guys aren't used to that. If you're not used to stress, and you can't deal with it, you'll eventually die from it. Look at the Enron guys. Those of use who have to earn or deal with stress on the daily are at the advantage having to deal with it.

    True, the human body becomes pretty good at handling stress. Unfortunately, most of us experience high levels of stress in our lives and our professions for prolonged periods of time. Your body handles it fairly well, but it’s taking its toll on your body. That’s why many people suddenly get sick when they retire. The damage was being done throughout the years, but a busy lifestyle and the stress hormones helped to mask a lot of subtle initial symptoms.

    It sucks to slave at a job. That’s why it’s my plan to be a lottery winner and live the life of luxury. Any day now..... :p

    Stress is a killer, poisons released into the bloodstream for a fight or flight response, which works well in the wilderness with animals. Trouble is, today humans do neither but stew in the poison

    True. I can’t run away from my job, I’ll get fired...and lose my license. And I can’t fight anyone at my job, I’ll get fired...and might lose my license. So I stew.......and stew........and stew some more......:eek::D

    When you ship finally DOES come in...for God's sake...Don't just leave me stranded on the shore as you wave goodbye (with a fist-full of 100's in you hot little hand).:p:D

    In his case, he didn't even get to retire. I knew a bunch like that...my mom being another.

    Except Sergio wasn't retired. He just literally worked himself to death.
