I still felt a bit numb. I had plenty of money, more than I would ever need. Somehow, it robbed me of the incentive to scratch and claw my way up the financial ladder. I had also seen my enemies brought low. This also gave me little satisfaction. Revenge is a fine idea when you do not yet have it, but when your enemies suffer downfall and humiliation, it is surprisingly little comfort. All their sentences and financial suffering affected me only to a slight degree. Gardner was a stupid schnook who would spend a large amount of time in jail and leave his wife destitute with young children to support.
