Picture Of The Day

Is anyone surprised by this one?:

Al Capone's jail cell, Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia. High-level gangsters retained amazing power even inside maximum-security penitentiaries. Visiting Frank Costello in prison in the 1950s, lawyer Edward Bennett Williams mentioned that he'd been unable to get tickets to My Fair Lady that evening. "Mr. Williams," the Luciano boss upbraided him, "You should have told me. Maybe I could have helped." Williams thought no more about it and returned to his hotel, where shortly there was a knock at the door. A broad-shouldered man handed Williams four tickets to that evening's performance and silently walked away.
Whenever I watch the movie Goodfellas I always want to go to prison to live the high life...Then I watch the movie American Me and I totally reverse myself..

Looks nicer than my apartment.

Came here to drop this article on the Jedi cops on you, though. Thought you might like it, JBW.

Oops, here's the church's homepage.

Thanks, DLB. I'm still an atheist though. I tried Buddhism for a while and found it very similar to Jediism in many respects.

I still can't move things with my mind though and trust me, I've tried.

Greg, I quite obviously linked to your site in my post. You don't allow comments on your site. What more do you require?

Greg Ross said...

Sorry, James, my mistake -- I looked for the link but didn't see it. What you have is totally fine.

People have been lifting my content and I'm trying to crack down a bit -- I'm sorry for the confusion.

No worries, Greg. Keep up the good work.
