"You refer to the toupee you used to wear as 'the squirrel.' I gather from your memoir that when they made you take it off in prison, it was traumatic."

"Nah. After you get convicted and you’re doing four and a half years in jail, taking off a toupee is the least of your worries, especially in an all-male environment. In fact, I enjoy life without the squirrel. I get a haircut maybe once every couple of weeks, and that’s all I have to worry about."

Mayor Buddy, the Prince of Providence. Absolutely corrupt. Totally entertaining.

Sounds like Carl Reiner on the Dick Van Dyke show.

What a touchy guy, the interviewer didn't even have to mention urinating and he protests, "I never urinated on the guy!" Not only touchy but protesteth too much, ya think?

It's a pretty safe bet what the biggest worry in the all-male prison environment is.

I never paid any attention to this guy before but, speaking just from the few words in the interview, he seems to have to deny an awfully lot of diverse crimes over the years. Sure, the FBI absolutely would entrap a person they couldn't get any other way. On the other hand, how many times can you say "that never happened" before people have a reasonable doubt that it never did just based on hearing that many denials. Could any profession blow harder than a politician's?

Very good interview. Thanks for posting it, Professor. Where else would an Atlanta guy ever get access to such great stories.

My guess is that Mayor Buddy is Sicilian.
