That old line from Mobsters 
is so appropriate for the now
most public intrigue at VIA.

Can you remember the line from
Clemenza in the Godfather, when in
explaining to Michael Corleone,
the Mob War that erupted after the
Patriach was gunned down ?

"These things happen every 10 years
or so,,,,,everybody goes to the 
mattresses,there's some blood spilled
and it cleans the air." (sic)

Well Redstone must be a brother in
blood with "the fellas."
It was an exciting,romantized story
and film about "Garden Variety Sociopaths."

Is this "I am still the Boss" baloney any
different ? 

How about a screenplay for this charade ?
What could we call it ? And don't forget
the sequels !

Nah ! It's a two bit Soap Opera and besides
the production would be controlled by.....
well,who knows that business best ?
