    [from the World Encyclopedia of Organized Crime, written by Jay Robert Nash] "Samoots, as he was called by his friends, indulged his fancies at every opportunity. He owned three dozen tailor-made suits and hundreds of monogrammed shirts which were his pride and joy. When a laundry dared to return one of his shirts with a scorch mark, the gangster went crazy, leaping out of bed and racing after the horse-drawn laundry wagon. Half-dressed and with two pistols in his hands, Amatuna raged at the driver and leveled one of his guns at the man." He didn't shoot the guy, he ended up shooting the horse [​IMG] koji

    That's the scary thing, I sympathized with his plight, haha. And incidentally, he apparently was an accomplished violinist; however he often carried a different instrument in his case.

    Think of what you could fit into a piano case. You could carry around a tank or something.

    They do make piano cases, right..?
