So tonight, one of my favorite TV Shows is going to end. I really can’t believe it’s over now, after five awesome years. I had a great time with Boardwalk Empire. What a great series, great actors, everyone, from the screenwriter to the janitor of the studio did everything to make this series great. With her love and passion, they gave me one of the best things that could happen to me, and now it’s sadly time to say goodbye. But now one goes quietly, and I’m so thankful for the great time that they gave us all. Will you miss a TV Show? No. Will you miss a friend? Yes. I do. But at this pont, it is right to say a huge thank you to the whole cast of the amazing Show ‘Boardwalk Empire’ for one of the best series ever produced. So I raise a glass of illegal alcohol for Boardwalk Empire. THANK YOU! What you’ve done to us all will never be forgotten. THANK YOU! For… everything. I love you, Boardwalk Empire. 

One day on my way to school, I got stopped by a gang of older boys. The leader said he wanted my lunch money. I told him to go fuck himself. He laughed, said he’d beat it out of me, so I spit in his face. He did beat me, they all did, and they took my money. Next day, same thing. I spit in his face and then we fought. The third day, the kid asked me to join his gang. The kid was Charlie Luciano, and that’s how we teamed up. Last year we made more money than the President of the United States.
