I lived in Bensonhurst for almost 3 decades, and for 1 of those decades I made a living out of making pizza in a few Brooklyn pizzerias right in that very neighborhood.  I was within walking distance to L&B and even closer to Mr Barbati's home and my family still lives there to this day.  I must have driven or walked past his home hundreds of times and never knew he lived so close to me.

That's gotta be some sauce!
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

No kidding.

An article I read on PMQ (may have been linked from PMQ) yesterday said a mob associate asked for a sit-down between the Colombo and Bonanno families - at a Panera Restaurant. Really? Gonna work this out over chi lattes and scones?
