My friend visited Conrad Black when he was in prison in Florida and asked him how he was coping.
"When I arrived," CB said, "I was asked by an inmate if I was an English Lord. I said I had been given a life peerage for my work.
'There's a man here who'd like to meet you,' said the prisoner who then took him to the cell of Don Gambino.
'Hello Signor Gambino,' said CB.
'Pleased to meet you, Lord Black,' said Gambino. 'We have something in common.'
'You mean we're both victims of the fascist US Government?' enquired CB.
'No. I mean we're both industrialists,' replied Gambino."
