"Most of those state workers -- I've arranged for them to get a $15,000 loan with no interest, so if they're paying off $6,000 worth of credit debt at 14 percent, they should put a statue of me up on their mantel place," Rendell said.

What a generous fellow. And rich, too, to be able to make so many loans out of his own pocket.

But why does he restrict his generosity to only state employees?

Oh well, since it’s his own money, I suppose he can make loans to whomever he pleases.

Should the interest you would pay if you are not on the payroll be a taxable benefit?

Lares Rendell, Pontifex Maximus. The ancient Romans worshipped their ancestors and household gods (Lares), whose statues were kept at the entrance (vesta) to the home. Rendell, however, is a monotheist. He worships only himself.

Is he going to sell his statues? I don’t think he likes to do anything without a kickback of some sort.
