What was the point?

Dear Editor:

Granted, the names of our friends and neighbors who have suffered greatly due to Bernie Madoff’s fraudulent activity are in the public record.

However, did publishing those names, their connections to the Aspen community, and the link to the complete list provide any public benefit, or simply satisfy some baser level of human curiosity?
