New Hampshire in the Morning

Mike to Whitey: “You’re no Don Corleone.”

M - Somebody finally made Whitey Bulger an offer he couldn’t refuse. The Feds slapped on the cuffs and the mobster and his golden girlfriend were on a one-way flight back to Boston. All this Bulger buzz has put me in the mood to watch the first Godfather movie. Even though Whitey James J. Bulger got his movie treatment in The Departed, no one will ever eclipse cinema’s original Godfather, Don Corleone. Marlon Brando played the role as charmer and scoundrel beautifully. He was loving and he was ruthless. Sicily’s Corleone never desserted his family, which is more more than we can say about Southie’s Bulger, who took the last 16 years off for bad behavior. With a trial at least 2 years away for 81-year old Whitey, he will most certainly spend his last days in prison. Corleone spent his last moments chasing his grandon around his tomato patch. Brace yourselves for more Whitey movies, including The Departed – Prequel…but nothing will ever approach the amazing storytelling of The Godfather. Like I said. “Whitey, you’re no Don Corleone.”
