Greetings, all. I feel like posting but don't have anything in particular to write. Right when I finished the last sentence I thought to myself: I hope the riots out there stop in the near future and there is more peace and harmony in our society. I remember when there was more harmony. I yearn for those times. Life was more organic. Ex: Speaking to someone face to face or on the phone rather than texting and sending emails.

When was there been more harmony?

The riots are occuring because of inequality. You can't have harmony with inequality. It has existed for far too long in the US.

If any of you have Twitter, cool Vegas media outlet who covers a lot of entertainment/celebrity stuff in town.

It's worth following:

They just had a long story on former mobster Frank Cullotta who passed away.

I watched a couple of his videos in the past. He was absent for some time due to covid-19. When he reappeared he said he thought covid-19 was overstated.

I wonder if anyone on this forum remembers Tony Spilotro from back in the day. He was Mr. Cullotta's childhood friend.

Violent crime is lower in the big cities. The suburbs and rural areas may be a different matter. I'm not sure.

CY interview has a nice write up about him following his death. They just forgot to add the part about him being a killer.

What is CY?

I think Mr. Cullotta admitted to two killings. In Casino, he's the actor who replicated the killings.

If he admitted to two killings, maybe he really did 3X that.

I was happier 20 years ago, but the reason is you get grumpy as you age. Nothing to do with technology, other anecdotes.

I think a person becomes grumpier if they get sick also. (Not a cold but a major illness)
