"Nick, I-- I-- are you okay? Your head seems a little ... dissolving."

Welcome back, gang!

================

"This thing of ours," of course, refers to the Mafia. The synonym cosa nostra literally means "our thing," and was (is?) a euphemism to describe their business without using the word "Mafia." [/things you learn researching]

=============

Antonio Savaggio made a brief first appearance back on page 27 of this chapter. He is in his mid-fifties at least, and still dressing like he’s trying to be cool.

===============

I’m shooting to have the next update go live on Friday, bringing us back to a twice-weekly update schedule! Check back then!

It's already been a supernatural Taken and a supernatural Goodfellas ... I may need to see if I can squeeze in a fourth or fifth flick to rip off before this arc ends XD

The little one is fully grown
And playing with "our things"
His moral compass wobbles so
A new one shall you bring

Unless you lose your grip, of course
On the purpose that you cling
The chain is snapping link by link
Upon your anchor ring

The sins of our past never die
Their infection merely festers on
I know as I go to set things right
The cancer strikes me dead by dawn

(... I am not nearly as good at this as you. :P)
