And this time, we'll be getting the biggest, baddest thug of them all. Hollywood East Connection reports somebody's prepping a script about Whitey Bulger.
CTV reports bookstores in Vancouver, BC have been told to be alert for a dapper older gentleman with a penchant for books and a murderous rage.
J.M. Lawrence reports on a talk by a former FBI supervisor, who says the current $2 million reward just isn't enough for the "one or two people" who know Bulger's whereabouts.
Sure, the disgraced FBI agent and Whitey BFF got sentenced to 40 years on a second-degree murder charge for the 1982 Bulger-ordered execution of a guy in Miami. But J.M. Lawrence reports that media accounts failed to note Connolly could very well get off on the charge because Florida law has a statute of limitations on second-degree murder:
... News coverage of this case has yet to reveal what prosecutors said about the judge's second-degree murder instruction. Are there so many murders in Miami-Dade that the DA's office had no clue about a quirky statute of limitations in a 25-year-old case? And how many shades of angry red did Massachusetts Assistant U.S. Attorneys turn when they discovered this strange nasty hole ripping their net? ...
Loathsome ex-FBI agent John Connolly tells the Globe Whitey Bulger called him twice about turning himself in; Connolly gives no indication he actively tried to get him to do so.
And allegedly loathsome ex-Rockefeller Christian Karl Gehoweveryouspelliteiter is profiled in Vanity Fair and the fawning toady New York blogs that follow it, Amy Derjue spits.
... "Nobody would have looked at me in downtown Boston," said Robert Dowdy. ... "In Perugia, Italy at nine in the morning coming out of mass, there was only one gray-haired Irish guy. They zeroed in on me." ...
The FBI has released this video of a couple it says just might be Whitey Bulger and longtime gal pal Catherine Greig on April 10 of this year in Taormina, Sicily:
We are going off Broadway with a new play that tells the story of James Whitey Bulger and his long and odorous relationship with the FBI. We are looking for an elderly actor who is not afraid to throw on some support hose and a nappy old bra to portray the legedary gangster. We also need a junkie with long black hair and AIDS to portray the Choctaw Kid, as well as a corrupt midget to play the part of William Bulger (will accept dwarfs). Serious inquiries only. ...
On Onepotmeal, Steve says he's jumping on the Whitey-book bandwagon:
... In my book Whitey and I go to the beach, pilot rocketships, visit the moon, race hot air balloons, and throw eggs at pretty much anything we want to (eggs are cheap, because in my story, Whitey is a world-class chicken breeder; he is also a master juggler). ...

Howie Carr has a book out, as does Bulger Henchman 1 and now, Jay Fitzgerald informs us, Bulger Henchman 2. Oh, but there's also Bulger Henchman 3. And that's just this year. In 2003, we had Bulger Henchman 4. Who knew thugs were such prolific writers? And let's not forget the 2001 book by a couple of Globe reporters.
