12. Some Sicilian family members have been "mobbed up".
A few did big time in Walpole and Sing Sing. Not real "made" guys buys mafioso flunkies who ended up getting caught.

My Irish ancestors were from Southie and Somerville (MA) and worked with the "Winter Hill Gang" at the horestracks in MA and NH, fixing/doping races and other ill shit. An uncle of mine used to work at Whitey Bulger's garage in Somerville as a mechanic<sure...>, but never got his hands dirty with engine grease. He wouldnt know a solonoid from a radiator.

When I was young I was headed in the direction of my uncles. The Sicilians uncles wanted me to work for them driving a panel truck to Providence and back, not telling me what was in the boxes I was to deliver. I did that once and was so paranoid the whole trip. I delivered the load to this old mill building.The guys on the other end gave me $10.00 to go get something to eat, while they unloaded the boxes and told me to "keep your fucken mouth shut". Shortly after that I left Boston for CA just to get away from this element.
