this one might profitably be read in conjunction with the books influenced, or written by, Robert Blakey....the so-called, 'the mafia did it 'books, i.e. theories. I recommend interesting yourself in the strange career of Joseph Bonnano. v-e-l-l-y I-n-t-e-r-e-s-t-i-n-g, as the little dude used to say on the groundbreaking satire tv series, Laugh In. as William makepeace Thackeray, said, 'the wicked are wicked, no doubt and they go astray, and they fall, and they come by their deserts: but who can tell the mischief the very virtuous do?' there was a time, very early on, when I believed the mob were solely responsible for what was done to a good and decent man. This book helped foster that belief. So did MAFIA KINGFISH. even if the main point of such a book is wide of the mark, there are often valuable clues to be found there. when this one was written, the whole search was in a beginning stage. now, the understanding I have is that there was a tremendous amount of cooperation between the ' lead suspects.' so the question, 'who was the one responsible?' is necessarily invalid. there are bars where Mafiosi and government agents meet to drink together. I was at such a venue, and I asked this Italian American fellow, 'which was it, CIA, or Mob?' 'Two sides of the same coin,'he replied. there was a lot of money to be made from killing someone who in effect said ' That's not how I would arrange a motorcade.' A lot of money WAS made off of this killing. '50,000' was the figure mentioned for the Secret Service Agents involved. 50,000 then was a much larger number than it is now. I'm sorry, that's each. I'm also sorry that this is an accurate reflection of human nature, even in our Great Democracy. so much hooey about patriotism and the like. only the priests know, for sure. but we're not all Catholics, you know? by the way, Dallas was not an 'open town.' it was spoken for, mafia-wise. Joseph Civello was in charge there, under Carlos Marcello. Ruby was an underling of famous Al Capone, who had been sent south from Chicago to settle the town for the 'corporation.' He buddyed up to the cops, and thus was able to gain access to Oswald while in custody. Access with a handgun.
