I just purchased "The Black Hand", by Chris Blatchford. It is a true story about the Mexican Mafia, and it has a bunch of pictures in it, with one being a picture of a crime scene I was at many moons ago. I should have a good read once I get my affairs in order.

Yes. It is ironic that I know most of the players who are still locked up. I will start the book officially tomorrow while my daughter is having surgery.

Well, I read 250 pages and almost done with it. It is very interesting and I do know many of the players on both sides of the fence. A very interesting read on the inside life of the Mexican Mafia.
