A Macabre Jewish "Joke" Recycled

Rumors spread in an Eastern European Shtetl that a Christian child had been murdered and a pogrom was in the offing. The whole community went to the local synagogue to pray and gird themselves for the imminent onslaught, when, Moishe runs in breathless, saying, "Good news, it was a Jewish child."

Now, New York Jewish investors are mollified by the fact that Madoff's primary targets were Jews which has mitigated the perceived inevitable anti-Semitic backlash. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
