Well I can't find anything on this movie on google. Is that Malcolm McDowell? What exactly does he have to do with Boston in 1974? IRA connection for one of the mobs?

Is that Malcolm in the Middle?

My fave joke from the Night Hawks song was:

"The Boston Herald says 'Blacks and Whites as partners? NNnnnot in this town!"

Thinking about what I said here, I have a picture of an Italian mobster named "Crazy Carlo" (everybody called him that) who was my dad's connection to sell cocaine to during at least the 1970s, looking quite lost around 1984 as he is preparing to board my dad's boat to leave St. Thomas, a US port, to go to French St. Martin to fly to Europe without a passport, because he was wanted by the FBI for international arms trafficking. Sorry for the run on sentence. I haven't seen or heard from or heard about him since then.

TL:DR If this is some kind of mob movie involving guns during the 1970s, I probably called one of the major players, "uncle".

This miniseries (based on the J Anthony Lucas book) was pretty good (except for Richard Thomas's attempt a Boston accent - it was Dick Van Dyke-level awful).

Jonestown wasn't racist.  It had other problems though.

I did not say "perfect" or "wonderful." I said "better."

After I typed that I thought "Oh, right, it was not in America."  But it was filled with Americans.  Close enough.

My first impression of South Boston in the 90's: "Holy crap, it's a white ghetto." Haven't been back since, but if it's like everywhere else in Boston, it's probably been gentrified.

That was pretty much my point. People keep posting that picture as though it were evidence to confirm this "Boston is most racist" meme. It seems so popular among yankees fans, so I picked NYC this time.

See, a lot of people around the country are still traumatized by the Patriots' 20 year reign of terror. And this is their way of crying out in pain.
