I loved the writing in this story because it was just injected with a play on words and so much humor. It may be a little biased, but it’s hard not to be in this case. The story speaks for itself because it is so outrageous.

I think the irony of it all is that this former CFO of one of the largest health insurers actually perpetuated the health care problem in our country, with his spreading of STDs and most likely, depression. He even allegedly stopped payment on health coverage for one of his lady friends after she had a kidney removed.

I have to highlight some of my favorite lines:

Colby … “is depicted as a corporate Casanova — a world-class, love-’em-and-leave-’em sort of guy who romanced dozens of women around the country simultaneously, made them extravagant promises and then went back on his word with all the compassion of a health insurance company denying a claim.” That last part was especially clever.

Colby is … “a pudgy, bespectacled figure with salt-and-pepper hair” – I guess money is good for something. Sounds like a real winner.

One woman claimed he paid her $100,000 to make her feel more secure. This is because she just found out he was still married three days prior. There’s an easy way to make 100K.

From someone’s quote — “Modus operandi.” I haven’t heard that term in a long time. I actually used to know someone who used it a lot. I vote for it to come back into everyday use.

One judge threw out a case by a woman pleading emotional distress saying, “Although Colby’s conduct may be ungallant, it simply does not rise to the level of being ‘utterly intolerable in a civilized community.'” Oh wow.

And lastly, some of his text messages – “I chose you! Goodnight!” “ABORT” in reference to one woman’s pregnancy with his child.

You can find out more when SilverCreek Entertainment makes a book and movie on the story.

I guess it makes sports stars and celebrities look like angels … for a day.
