This is Greed, and this is what happens to Greedy people

Yuck of the month, Lou Pearlman, the man who created the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync, was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in federal prison for decades of scamming thousands of investors out of their life savings.

This was the maximum sentence the boy band freak-o-geek could receive for allegedly swindling some $300 million from investors and banks since the early 1980s.

Shame of you, Lou. Now who's going to buy all those rent-boys and make them a boy band now? P. Diddy?

It couldn't happen to a nastier guy. I read Lance Bass' book ( he was the bass in the 'N Sync group and he had enough to say about this cretin and how he bilked both of those groups out of millions. He went so far as to say he was "one of the 'N Sync members, technically. Well, the chickens have come home to roost and this could be a "life-sentence" for him considering his age.
