The Policemen Are Getting Younger -- But Not the Mob Guys

One of the telltale signs of age is how the policemen all seem to be getting younger. I have found that to be true, but not when it comes to mob guys. They still seem to be getting older.

Today I received a press release from the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan announcing the sentencing of a Genovese family capo named Ciro Perrone, who had been convicted of RICO violations, loansharking and such. He is 87 years old. The sentence was five years.

Here's more on Perrone, in case you care. Seems he had asked for clemency for his "civic deeds." Such as, perhaps, showing us all how a guy can still remain active well into his golden years?
