If Nothing Else Good Happens Today, at Least Sam Zell Is Getting Screwed

A judge has ruled that Sam Zell—the gnomish billionaire and purposeful asshole who singlehandedly bankrupted the Tribune Co. in one short year, thanks to his own personal greed and incompetence—will be the very last creditor to get paid out in the company's bankruptcy proceedings. Dead last. Zell has $315 million of his own money at stake.

Sam Zell is still incredibly rich, but at least he maybe lost a few hundred mil. And hey, only three more days until the weekend, folks. Spring's coming.
