William Bender at the Philadelphia Daily News offers a piece on Gino DiPietro, the victim of an apparent organized crime murder in South Philadelphia.
You might argue that the Italian Mafia is harmless these days: La Cosa Nostra has been reduced to a bunch of has-beens making high-interest loans, running video-poker machines in bars and shaking down the occasional South Philly thug for a piece of the action.
But you can't argue with a bullet-riddled corpse, a canceled wedding and a lonely German shepherd.
