Hi Ken

To be honest my politics have been greatly informed by Mario Puzo. I tend
to believe that yes there are plots and conspiracies and I think often of
the great line

“Tattaglia is a pimp. He never could have outfought Santino. But I didn’t
know until this day that it was Barzini all along.”

Life is so much more interesting if you always ask "Cui Bono?  True!
