    It would be too easy to assume what "Mob Wives," VH1's latest foray into the reality world, premiering Sunday, April 17, is about. People expect "Sopranos"-style living, where shiny black SUVs idle outside McMansions kept spotless by immigrant workers...

    June 10, 2011
    I went to a cartoonist dinner the other night in Westport and had a great time and a lot of laughs. My wife and I sat at a table with Randall Enos and Chance Brown who told the most outrageously funny stories about the cartoonists in the Golden Age of...
  • Our Laguna: Warm and witty honors for Laguna's 'rescuer'

    Another kind of guide
    The way to approach Texas is from space — you see the United States, the land mass south of everything looms up at the bottom of the country, Oklahoma rushes past, the sky gets dusty, boom, you're in a used-car lot outside Dallas, humid. Texas is so...

    Head of Chicago pension fund tried to collect an unearned union pension
    James Capasso Jr. walked into a union pension fund office in 2002, announced he was retiring from Laborers' Local 1001 and applied for a pension. The request was curious, considering Capasso had never held a paying job with Local 1001. In fact, he had...

  • Pesci teams with Travolta in John Gotti bio-drama

     
    We haven't seen much of Joe Pesci in recent years. I was under the impression the Oscar winner had more or less retired. He's 68, and he was last seen in “Love Ranch,” which nobody saw. Perhaps he was waiting for the right mobster movie to...
