Leave The Gun... Take The Miami Subs

The Mooselings wonder if Jack Abramoff's friends can get him off the hook. You know, for old times sake.

It's no wonder that today's New York Times is reporting that Tony Soprano and Crew Will Return for 'O7 Season. It had been rumored for a while that the show's creator David Chase may have been unsure if he'd have enough fodder to keep his stellar drama moving beyond a few final episodes. But something's changed, he's "reinvigorated," and they'll be rolling out at least 20 more hour-long Sopranos episodes over the next two years.

Maybe Chase has been reading the Washington Post.

Today's article outlining the events that lead up Abramoff's indictment provides some of the most thrilling reading of the summer. Complete with wire fraud, shady counterfeit business transactions, fist fights, casinos, cruiseboats, the Gambino family, professional football, the famed Miami Subs sandwich impresario Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis, and his unsolved gangland-style Florida assassination.

The Mooselings think it was Solozzo, Don Corleone's rival, who said "I don't like violence, Tom. I'm a businessman; blood is a big expense."

Fortunately for Abramoff and his associates, they can handle big expenses, having collected $82 million in fees for lobbying and public affairs work from Indian tribes around the country.
