Another dude who deserved his hood. Now Gangsters, I haven't written about them yet. 'Gangs of our Streets' yep, but not Gangsters. The wonderful thing about words, are their ability to paint images, that so many can see, James........

And so we sigh in hushed relief / Departing souls that caused us grief. Excellent epigram Richard.
