By now you've probably heard about Bernard Madoff, the scam artist who, by defrauding a bunch of banks and rich guys through a giant Ponzi scheme, cost the world $50 billion, essentially taking a steaming dump on the huge dump that already was our global economy.
Braman lately has been in the news for another reason: His lawsuit against the city and county's "Megaplan" stalled the Marlins' planned Little Havana stadium from opening until at least 2012.

The reason we bring it up: We met with Braman at his BMW dealership Wednesday, a couple of days before his fleecing by Madoff was reported. If Braman was aware of the scam, he didn't seem too concerned. In fact he didn't seem too concerned about anything, least of all the chance that the Megaplan might actually come to fruition. What was his quote? Oh, yeah: "I have every confidence that the city and county's proposal will never come to fruition."
