My family told me that I was in the "Chicago" family as a child, as if I didn't have a choice. I didn't. I told them that I wasn't, and that I was from Minnesota. I was told that I would understand it someday. My mother told me - Ross P, my Uncle Italian Catholic godfather - who had married into my family, would fly from Chicago to Vegas a lot during the 70's. Apparently, the Mafia Organization that he was in sort of ran Las Vegas during that time. The first time that I saw the movie, Casino, I felt like throwing up & left the room - too close to home.
My mom explained the situation - as similar to if the Hatfields and McCoys had met and had a baby.
One of my twitter handles is @NKMfamily
. I am in the biological side of Norman Mailer's family through DNA - not marriage, Mafia or location.
