LOU PEARLMAN’S REDEMPTION.  Lou Pearlman had a heart attack and died at the age of 62 incarcerated for 25 years on a Ponzi scheme conviction. It brought back memories of sitting at the Church Street Station some years ago watching an Orlando Business Journal Top 100 Event as Lou proffered his young boy band talent to the Central Florida community, as he traversed the country in his personal Gulf Stream, having bilked countless investors of millions of dollars. No one knows whether Lou sought or obtained spiritual redemption in prison, but I can’t help but feel somewhat personally saddened he is now unable to seek societal redemption for the massive wrongs he clearly committed.
