    It's says you young whippersnappers think governmental corruption is a recent development, and this generation invented it. The legend of Jimmy Hoffa harkens back to a simpler time, when men were men, and the mob ran the largest union in the country, the AFL-CIO: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Hoffa

    When it got to be too high profile, the allegation is the mob made Jimmy disappear. Personally, I think he just developed early onset Alzheimer's, then simply wandered off, forgetting where he lived....;)

    You really should follow the link I posted above regarding Geraldo Rivera, and "Al Capone's Vault". Funny stuff, but maybe it's a case of "you hadda be there".

    Time stood still during the original broadcast, and it seemed like Rivera was able to stop time with the power of sheer boredom.

    "Brooklyn DA" on CBS last evening, turned a one short hour into a yawn fest of indeterminate length. So, contemporary broadcast TV is keeping the legend of reality TV alive, as a sleep aid.

    Now, please don't tell me you don't know who Geraldo Rivera is. Although granted, you would be much better off if you didn't.

    This is going to be interesting no matter what happens. We are either gonna see the rumors become full truth and see a piece of history, or we are gonna find the dream to have been just that.

    Either way I cant wait to see the results

  6. AVGN never reviewed ET for the Atari, that youtube link is a fake review put together using some of his other footage and splicing in images of the game. He's actually currently working on a full length feature film that is entirely based on the ET game though. Should be interesting!
