Whitey’s Back in Town

Who among us has not been riveted by all the hype surrounding the capture and return to Boston of Whitey Bulger?

He is at once the alleged former leader of the Irish mob in Boston and the longtime favorite rat for the FBI.

Being the leader of the Irish mob and the FBI’s biggest rat is all about incongruity. In other words, how could you be one and be the other at the same time?

None of us likes a rat. And so no one should be waving a flag for Whitey.

He is the lowest of the low, a pathological, homicidal idiot now home for a dose of justice.

He was finished and done when he ran away.

He is finished and done now spending 23 hours a day in a cell in Plymouth.

Good riddance.
