The Texas Jailyard Massacre

Sir Allen Stanford is learning the hard way that prison is not a cushy number. I won't accord him the title of "billionaire", former, disgraced or otherwise, because the courts have yet to decide how much of his wealth, if any, was acquired legally.

Nevertheless, Sir Allen, who last month complained to the authorities about the lack of air conditioning in his cell, seems to have fallen out with one of the other 10 inmates kept in the same cell where he is being held on remand. He has just been returned to his cell after a trip to the hospital wing where he was treated for "a concussion, two black eyes, a broken nose."

It was not reported whether his assailant had lost any money through investments with Stanford's firm.
