: One PIP (Person of the Italian Persuasion) likes the nickname. A few people have asked what it means.

: A more meaningful definition can be found at:


: You can go back to the old neighborhood, but the "family" guys will have to find me first.

: Yes, I'm connected, but only to the internet and to my cable company.
