On father's day


This picture may or may not be of Jimmy Longo   My father's first cousin and body guard to Santos Trafficante who lived in his mother's house down the street from my boyhood Tampa home  While Mistrettas' were related to the famiglia we were not mafiosos  All our relatives came from the same region of Sicily  There they were family 

I took this picture (of a picture) at the Columbia Restaurant in Tampa   A fine historic dinning establishment

For the curious see    Cigar City Mafia...

To me, it comes down to a simple point about the economy, but also what sort of country do we want to be? I want to be a country that does want to work with others. What I’ve learned in six years is that there is no problem in the world that isn’t better addressed with your allies, your friends and your neighbors.

Conservative peer Sayeeda Warsi has quit the leave campaign, accusing her colleague and leading Brexiteer Michael Gove of spreading “complete lies about Turkey’s accession to the EU”.

London Bridge Falling Down

      London Bridge Is Falling Down


Brexit is the British exit from Europe's economy. By isolating themselves from their neighboring countries
they also put their defenses at odds with foreign policies that would require negotiation during dire times – a dangerous waste of time.

The whole political media uproar becomes a gadget with no real purpose, just as the current US presidential race becomes a contest of words with little or no outcome. The British people will listen to someone who will define an inevitable consequence with certainty just as soon as the Americans decide on a president whose words and actions they can trust - before the election.
