My firend was once on Sicily and he asked if there is still Mafia... the people who live there were silent and/or were just laughing to him. Something like: "Gee what to do you think smart mouth?"

In Chicago we have a current issue going on with waste haulers. In another story, several of the "independent contractor" trucking companies hired by the city tend to spend a lot of time sitting parked while collecting money. And, we've had bribes scandals in trucking recently.

However, I worked for an Italian law firm (representing scrap yards and such) and attended several italian lawyer events ("Justinian Society") and never saw a hint of it. I mean, the guys looked like Tony Soprano and said "fook" and "fookin" a lot, but I saw nothing other than that.

I'm sure they're around in one way or another. Cities always teem with evil and decay, don't they? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Yea-yeah. I think I see it now.

I think the Mafia will always exist. It's just not possible to wipe out every one with evil thoughts.
