    i lived and hated the mob as a child. my father worked at the stardust and knew all of the murderous thugs. my father was the hooked gambler portrayed in the movie,"casino" with the large family (six children). we always went along with my father to pay his marker at the, tower of pizza, restaurant. when my father was not able to pay, these upstanding hooligans would flatten our family car tires and my poor mom would have to walk to work..I wouldn't go to that dump museum if someone paid me...
