The Good Men Project

There’s a scene in the 1993 mob flick A Bronx Tale in which Robert De Niro’s hard-working bus driver Lorenzo comes face to face with Sonny LoSpecchio – the neighborhood mobster in the process of corrupting Lorenzo’s son ‘C’ and who never did an honest day’s work in his life.

When ‘C’ comes home one day with a stack of dirty money, Lorenzo is enraged and bravely stands up to LoSpecchio in a vain attempt to save his son from an inevitable life of crime.

“That’s bad money,” Lorenzo tells his boy. You can’t have it. As for you, he says addressing the mobster, “Stay away from my son”.

They should update other things in the game too. Instead of a get out of jail free card, they should have a Dodgy Lawyer card that not only gets you out of jail straight away but also gives you a fat payout in compensation for daring to arrest you in the first place. Instead of getting a hotel when you… [read more]
