Check out this piece from Rolling Stone today. There's nothing totally new in it, but it does a nice job of rounding up a complete portrait of the maverick as an old man.

And why the fuck are we not hearing the word "Keating" every single day? Lessee-- a senator beholden to a rogue who used new and misunderstood financial instruments to gamble on real estate values, the outcome being the massive failure of financial infrastructure that the taxpayers had to bail out to the tune of billions. Sound familiar?
