Judge Seitz Wants Barry Minkow to “Work on His Soul.”


Like Rumpy I have a few actual legal matters to attend to, so I apologize for not providing an outlet this morning for everyone to waste their time.

So let’s do that now!

Nobody takes a longer better plea than Judge Seitz, and you can always count on her to say something interesting.

Following up on her “Kingdom of God” admonition to some idiot who badly — I would say tragically — overpaid for dinner, the Judge yesterday turned her ecumenical eye on poor Barry Minkow, an habitual con man who the feds just can’t seem to quit:

Minkow said among his college degrees were a master’s of divinity and a bachelor’s degree in church ministries.

Seitz asked, “Given all those degrees, how did you get involved in this?” Minkow conceded, “I’m not too wise, ma’am.”

Seitz responded, “You need to work on your soul, sir.”

She added, “but first get to work on your short game.” Oh I kid. But she’s right — everyone truly does need to work on their soul.

Speaking of soul, happy birthday to the clinically insane Christopher Walken.

Here’s Kevin Pollak doing his classic tribute to the man (Kevin will be performing in Palm Beach today through Saturday).
