Whitey Bulger to face judge for sentencing

James "Whitey" Bulger, the convicted Boston mobster whose rise and fall was as convoluted as any Hollywood script, goes before a judge Wednesday with prosecutors calling for him to be locked away for life.

The 84-year-old Bulger was found guilty of racketeering, extortion and money laundering in August after a rancorous two-month trial, with a federal jury linking him to 11 killings. Federal prosecutors have urged District Judge Denise Casper to hand down a life sentence for the longtime fugitive, calling him one of the city's "most violent and despicable criminals."

    Two Mexican detectives were investigating the murder of Juan Gonzalez.
    "How was he killed?" asked one detective.
    "With a golf gun," the other detective replied.
    "A golf gun?! What is a golf gun?"
    "I don't know. But it sure made a hole in Juan."

      I pass them out sparingly these days, as someone has taken Umbrage with them and uses them mockingly.
