The Real Al Capone

Capone: The Man and the Era

I just downloaded this – and I can’t stop reading it. The real Capone is a different from the man everyone thinks he is – that you will not recognize him.

I remember the last time I talked about him in a drug-infested area of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. Half of the population there is on crack. Somehow we started talking about Al Capone – a man better known, the world around. than Marilyn Monroe – for heavens sake!

I told them that he died of Syphilis – after being served with a life sentence for Income Tax Evasion.

This impressed them!
