Multiple-time suggester Bruce from Cambridge, IL, writes:
"You suggest in his profile that Bernie Madoff stole $50 billion. Well, they're going to recover a lot of that, and he also paid back early investors with stolen money, so the true amount stolen is a lot lower. If you consider a lifetime at the highest levels of organized crime, adjusting for inflation and remembering that Lansky paid no taxes on his wealth, I think he might give Bernie a run for his ill-gotten money."
So we got the #1 and #2 thieves in history? Hmmm...
Lansky was also suggested by Sofia from Florida, John from New York, as well as returning suggesters Michael from Maryland, Avi from Amstelveen, and Moishe from La Jolla.
