November 5th, 1999
The interesting e-mail award this week goes to the Curly Mob in Dade County (this is the first time I've gotten an e-mail from a "mob") They clued me in on a Florida retiree that claims to have been connected with the both the Mafia and the Kennedy assassination. After being up in Michigan I take any chance I can to get closer to the equator.
The Shady Palms Retirement Home (how's that for a cliched name?) was a hopping place. Lot's of shuffleboarding, bridge playing, Hawaiian shirt wearing old people. Remind me never to grow old.
In exchange for taking him out for drinks I got a pretty amazing story. All the facts I could track down checked out which makes it even eerier. The other interesting thing is that this connects with an earlier story I did on a voodoo mob hit up in New York. Makes you wonder, don't it?
