5. Trump might like to think

2. I posted Sonny's quote a few days ago. Over the years, I have occasionally thought of it.

6. Believe It Or Not

There were mobsters who fought in both world wars in the service of the United States:https://www.cosanostranews.com/2011/02/gangsters-are-decorated-war-vets-too.html

Notable service by Monk Eastman who fought in WW1 and was given a military funeral after his murder in 1920 with a police escort: https://themobmuseum.org/blog/mobsters-in-the-military/

And believe it or not: A lot of mafiosos were patriotic: https://www.wearethemighty.com/history/mobsters-world-war-ii?rebelltitem=3#rebelltitem3
