    Hey Maggie,

    Are you questioning The Smoking Gun as being not mainstream, or the Post?

    Smoking Gun. I'm not sure about the NY Post either. May just be my own bias.

    The story is being picked up everywhere. I've seen it in the Times, Time, Fox and NPR, among others, already this afternoon.

    I don't know how credible the Gun is, but this sure is an interesting story.

    I should have Googled before I posted. Yes, I see you're right. It all does stem from Smoking Gun, but the fact that major news sources picked it up is evidence to me that they found it credible. Thanks.

    Yeah TB....that's why I grabbed the Guardian from overseas. Although it would be nice to CNN, Huff-Po and MSDNC respond about it.

    While I have no love for Sharpton at all, why are people flaming him for helping to put organized crime figures who were putting the squeeze on prominent NYC music figures in jail?

    I think people are attacking him for being a prominent figure in NYCs underground crime. I personally see a bit of irony in people who constantly complain about inner city people not cooperating with cops - now complaining about inner city people cooperating with cops.

    On a side note, I remember reading Joe "BANANA" BONANNOS (Not Joseph "Bana's" Buonannos") biography about 10 years ago. Quite the interesting character and his book revealed a lot of interesting little facts about the Castellammarese war up in NY. I'm really shocked they got his name and nickname wrong and also that his connection to Al Sharpton in the 1980s is never once mentioned in the book. It's also interesting that Joseph Bonanno is stated as being a member of the Gambino family... he was a member of the Bonanno family...
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    It's almost like the people talking about this have no idea what the **** they're talking about! So that's new.
