On the reading front!

Almost finished Dino and my  idyllic childhood memories are taking  a beating.Back then ,I didn't realize the extent of control of the entertainment  business the mafia had. Not only were Martin and Lewis indirectly connected to the mob (via the clubs they played ) but it also  spread right into the government. When Kennedy was elected ,the mob  gave a million dollars to help  get him elected. They hoped that he would crack down on his brother  Bobby and his pursuit of  Hoffa and the Unions .Kennedy then promptly made Bobby the attorney General . After reading this I am wondering if the mob did have  had something to do with their assassinations. Interesting huh!
