Organized crime piece

Not sure if Lisa Brody received much feedback on this, but I must say, this was a great article on Detroit Organized Crime (May/Downtown).

Several of us at the U.S. Attorney’s Office thoroughly enjoyed it, including some of us who were actually around during some of the noted investigations.

For myself, having interviewed a few mob guys over the years (decades actually), I was very impressed with your early LCN (La Cosa Nostra) history. Dead on.

Keep up the great work.
