    Fredo and Johnny Ola can go back to those secret hangouts, which feature bondage. ;D
    On the serious side, his brother is taking over. Same ol', same ol'. Nepotism in Cuba, wow, I thought Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism and all the other isms were supposed to create Utopian societies where none of that hanky panky was going to ever exist.

    Perhaps a little Billy Joel:

    Little Rock, Pasternak, Mickey Mantle, Kerouac
    Sputnik, Chou En-Lai, "Bridge on the River Kwai"

    Lebanon, Charlse de Gaulle, California baseball
    Starkweather homicide, children of thalidomide

    Buddy Holly, "Ben Hur", space monkey, Mafia
    Hula hoops, Castro, Edsel is a no-go

    U-2, Syngman Rhee, Payola and Kennedy
    Chubby Checker, "Psycho", Belgians in the Congo
