Happy Saint Valentine's Day!
Here's wishing you roses and candy and blah, blah, blah... yeah right, screw that.
When I think of February 14th, I think of Al Capone. Now that was a guy who knew how to send a Valentine's greeting that no one would ever forget!
The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre was orchestrated by Capone in retaliation against fellow mobster, Bugs Moran and his gang.
It is said that many people in Chicago's Lincoln Park section of town woke up to the sound of gunfire on Valentine's Day, 1929... and yet there were no eyewitnesses.
The only survivor was one of the dead men's dogs (whose howling alerted police that something was wrong).
Did you know that when Capone was finally brought to justice, it wasn't for this or his hundreds of other dastardly deeds, no sir, Big Al was finally arrested on tax evasion charges!
