New Criminologist: Mob Speak's Website of the Year
Just discovered a fascinating Website: New Criminologist--The online journal for criminology.
The site is chock full of important mob-related info, as much as any I've seen, and it's worth your taking a look.
I heard about New Criminologist from my friend Ron Chepesiuk, a multi-published author of a long list of non-fiction crime books and articles. Ron spits out top-quality literature such as his upcoming title, Gangster's of Miami, November 2009, the way bunnies produce offspring.
I'm hoping Ron will give me permission to reprint his article about the movie The Irishman due for release on St. Paddy's Day 2010. The movie is based on Rick Porrello's book, To Kill the Irishman. (Porrello is pictured above.)
Ron describes the lengthy (10 years), tedious book-to-big screen process and why it's a near impossible endeavor. Every word he says is true.
