"Capone had invited three Sicilian gangsters to a lavish feast. He was the most exuberant and genial of hosts until the enormous meal had been consumed. Then, suddenly, he accused them of disloyalty an offense he could not tolerate.

"Capone's bodyguards fell upon them , lashing them to their chairs with wire and gagging them.
Capone got up, holding a baseball bat. Slowly, he walked the length of the table and halted behind the first guest of honor. With both hands, he lifted the bat and slammed it down full force. Slowly, methodically, he struck again and again, breaking ones in the man's shoulders, arms and chest. He moved to the next man and, when he had reduced him to mangled flesh and bone, to the third.


One of the bodyguards then fetched his revolver from the checkroom and shot each man in the back of the head."

If that's "great", I'm glad I'm a nobody.

Doesn't seem like it has a scratch on it. Like its been restored to look prior to any gun fights.
That's no fun.
