Frank Rosenthal was an old-style "Kosher Nostra" guy who actually hosted a local television program(me) in Las Vegas, Nevada, which program(me) was viewed, by some, as a high profile advertisement for Mafia involvement in the Las Vegas casino skim.

My native city's own Mr. Frank Peter Balistrieri blamed Mr. Rosenthal for the then-current law enforcement interest in Las Vegas casinos, which interest was, in fact, due to the involvement of the primary supervisors of the Las Vegas skim on behalf of the Chicago Outfit, Anthony and Michael Spilotro, in residential burglaries.  (Don't ask me why a white-collar criminal would insist on committing blue-collar crimes of a type which would pressure local law enforcement to investigate.)  Anyways, Chicago Boss Tony Accardo eventually figured this out and had the Spilotro brothers whacked (i.e., beaten into semi-consciousness and then buried alive).  Afterwards, Mr. Balistrieri was placed in charge of the Las Vegas skim.  FBI Special Agent Joseph D. Pistore (better known as Bonanno Family wiseguy "Donnie Brasco") tried to get the Bonanno Family involved in Mr. Balistrieri's skim operation, but Mr. Balistrieri somehow magically knew to steer clear of that deal.

Anyways, here's the story of the attempted hit on Frank Rosenthal:

Per: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Rosenthal

Rosenthal survived an assassination attempt, in October 1982, after his car was rigged with explosives.[3] He survived because his car was a 1981 Cadillac Eldorado which had a metal plate under the driver's seat (GM installed it to correct a balancing problem) which absorbed most of the force of the explosion. While nobody was ever charged, Milwaukee Mob Boss Frank Balistrieri was most likely responsible. Balistrieri, who was known as the "Mad Bomber" to law enforcement, was heard via wiretap blaming Rosenthal for the legal problems the mob controlled casinos were having. Similarly, just weeks before the attempt, Balistrieri told his sons he intended to get "full satisfaction" from Rosenthal's perceived wrongdoing.[4] Other less likely suspects include Spilotro, and outlaw bikers who were friends of Geri Rosenthal.

Amazing phenomenon!!!

This post isn't as I'd written!

Every single time four asterisks appear, the word that I'd actually written was "casino"!

Isn't that funny?

Donnay and SUPREMEMASTER:

When you got your words blocked, did you also get instantaneously flooded with cellphone ads as I did?  (Not just pop-ups, but full webpages!)

I've just sent EvadingGrid the following PM:

EvadingGrid:

Someone has apparently reset this forum's family filter to a level which has interfered with the discussion on a thread I started.  (I'm here referring to the thread under "General Discussion" entitled: "The Strange Tale of the Attempted Murder of Mr. Frank Rosenthal", which thread I urge you to review.)

Could you, or whoever controls this forum's family filter, please lighten up on it?

Thanks.

Bad Penny,

I did not get any flood of ads when my word was censored.  But it is weird how the word CASINO would be censored to begin with?   Undecided


Its to keep SpamBots out,..,
