I saw where Victoria Gotti has written a book about her dad so if any of you are Gotti fans you might want to put it on your WL. I do have to say John Gotti did have quite a powerful presence about him I put him up there with Capone and Dillinger and Segal.I dont condone his crimes but he was the teflon Don for awhile and I don't think we will see another like him.

I saw the 48 Hours program she did on Saturday about her book.  Her reality program ( a few years ago) showed what a weird lady she was and at that time, her sons were very spoiled.  I think her father must have put some $$$$ somewhere for her to live in that lifestyle.

I agree with you about the money, I think her reality show was a mess her kids were beyond ridiculous but I think John Gotti was the embodiment of what it meant to be the head of an organized crime family.I just thought it was a bit crazy when they sent Gotti up the river and put Sammy the Bull in the witness protection program.Gotti ordered hits but Sammy actually pulled the trigger.I think they both deserved the same punishment,
