A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of the Watson's Hotel and was told by some of you lovely people that it was a place that didn't allow dogs and Indians during the British Raj.
This incident inspired Jamsetji Tata to build this majestic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.

It opened on December 16th, 1903 and still stands strong, while today, the Watson's Hotel looks dilapidated.

Oggi si sale a Cortona centro principale della val di Chiana Aretina. "Nonna di Troia e Mamma di Roma" (Detto cortonese tratto dai vv. 163-171 del III libro dell'Eneide di Virgilio). Città prima Etrusca e poi Romana posta a 500 mt slm da cui si domina la Val di Chiana ed il lago Trasimeno.

Joe "The German" Watts
Generally, little attention has been paid to these rumors -- although I must say that today, when we know the government has had killers like Greg Scarpa and Whitey Bulger on its payroll, it is not as difficult to believe. I am not saying Dellacroce was a rat; from everything I know, he was a much admired mobster, a "man's man" to whom everyone showed great respect.

But how can anyone know for certain? Only the Feds would... Now, back to DeMeo: I think the Feds have a very good reason to hide a relationship with Roy. Read the first two graphs of this story again... Roy was, basically, a mass murderer, widely reviled... The Feds would've taken great heat, most likely, for forming a relationship with Roy DeMeo. But if Roy gave them evidence and was then whisked off to a WitSec program, they could possibly never have to reveal Roy was even alive... (But how would they get the tapes admitted if there was a trial?) I am speculating here, and this is a complicated issue. It could be that I am "over-thinking" this.

When I tried to contact the law enforcement official on my own to follow up on the information my friend received and then shared with me, the official would not return my phone calls or an email I sent him.

If anyone in law enforcement out there reads this, please comment below if you know anything -- or email me at [email protected] This information is historical; Roy has been gone for decades, so I would think any revelations would strictly have their greatest impact among the academics of American La Cosa Nostra. #mostwantedwednesday #truecrime #history #mob #mobsters #mafia #organizedcrime #chicago #alcapone #newspaper #reporter #journalism #crimefighter #sensational #news #dramaticreading #listen #subscribe #share #support

人生不盡荒唐 因為歷史從來沒有教育意義 即時跌得多麼傷 割得有多深 錯誤還是會不斷重複
可是 我們之所以能一錯再錯 是因為當日的傷口結痂了吧 還是 我們的記憶真的如金魚般 只有七秒

Russian guide to taking out a Elefant( Elephant )/Ferdinand Tank Destroyers. I like how it shows the different rounds penetration and where. Note: not many shells were able to go through the 200mm thick armor plates on the front.
