“It’s not tv, its NYC” should be the new mob slogan.  Soprano’s ended over 8 months ago now, but why fret when all the action packed, gumar filled, baked-ziti lovin’ mafia goodnees is just over on CNN?  Isn’t the real stuff better anyways? 

US and Italian authorities launched a massive operation against the New York and Sicilian Mafia Thursday, arresting more than 80 suspects in a sweep described as a major blow against organized crime.

Prosecutors in New York unveiled a 170-page indictment against 62 individuals detailing murder, racketeering, loan sharking, conspiracy, drugs and extortion charges for crimes going back as far as the 1970s.

The sweep netted 61 alleged members of three of the five families that run the Mafia in New York — the Gambino, Genovese, and Bonanno families. [AFP]

Pictures were released in conjunction with the statement and, just for fun, I’ve matched some of them up with their HBO dopplegangers. (Forgive me if they’re a little grainy.  I only have Paint to work with at my job.)

It’s all the fall guys that were arrested!  No Tony, no Sylvio, no Johnny Sacs, just the footsoldiers.  Of course, Junior’s in there, but he’s just for the headlines, you know?  Those tricky FBI agents. . . .
