BEANTOWN (USA)— The racketeering trial of reputed Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger is set to begin Wednesday — and it's the hottest ticket in Beantown.  Jimmy Bulger was a good friend of my grandfathers and he was around my way a lot when I was little.  Right up till I was 13, 14 anyway and I just loved the guy.  He gave me my first Kennedy half dollar and my first real ass kicking when he found out I stole a model car from the drug store across the street from my grandmother’s house.

Everyone loved Jimmy; when he walked into a place everyone would just go wild.  You’ve seen the movie Goodfella’s?  The DeNiro character Jimmy Conway?  That character was based on real life Irish gangster Jimmy Burke but it could have just as easily have been about Jimmy Bulger—he was that kind of guy. 

To say that Bulger was a wanted man is a bit of an understatement. He is charged with 19 counts of murder, in addition to numerous sundry felonies.He was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted criminals for 12 years, when he and his longtime girlfriend were arrested in California he has an impressive arsenal and $800,000 in cash. 

The case against Bulger is already becoming a circus.  Judges have been ordered off the bench, the State Police are accused of allowing John “The Executioner” Martorano, an infamous hit man who has admitted to performing 20 murders to run illegal gambling operations as a payout to testify against Bulger.  Martorano worked for the Winter Hill Gang in the 1970s and 1980s. He eventually turned state’s witness and did 14 years in jail. He was released in 2007.  The FBI did extensive background checks on all the potential jurors because…  well this is Boston and that’s Jimmy Bulger; to this day, many Southie residents speak of Whitey with misty-eyed nostalgia, portraying him as their own Irish-American Robin Hood, recalling how he would buy groceries for widows and distribute free turkeys to the poor at Thanksgiving.

There are a lot of people out there who like Jimmy Bulger and would like nothing more than to see him get off, me among them.  I’ll be writing more on this as I am certain it’s going to be interesting.

Further down the fold, as it were in the electronic age, CBS runs a headline stating Nicole Kelly, born without an arm, crowned Miss Iowa.  Holy creeping Jesus.  Of course the article pointed to her bravery and courage and lest we forget the handicapped are discriminated against and the young Ms. Kelly is going to be using her new celebrity status to ram this cause down our throats with all the others.  Imagine if she were to announce she’s gay?  LMFAO, she’ll be the darling of The Left and no doubt a last minute Obama appointee before he steps down.

The US is becoming politically correct to the point of absurdity and it’s getting worse and worse all the time.

Kelly’s official Miss Iowa picture shows her smiling in a black dress with her stump clearly visible.  I bet you when she walked out on stage the crowd went wild with hysteria, tears, standing ovation—the works.  The second she started swinging her stump around the pageant was over because there wasn’t any possible way anyone else was going to win—unless they were a black lesbian with two missing arms….

Is this what the USA is going to be all about now?  Armless beauty queens and legless lesbians running foot races?
