    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The FBI confirms former Gambino crime boss John Gotti has died at the federal prison at the U.S. medical center for federal prisoners in Springfield, Missouri, where he was being treated for cancerous lesions on the tongue, neck and ears. He was 61.

    By murdering his way to the top of one of the nation's most powerful mob families, Gotti became a legend, respected and feared by many.

    He was the last of the classic gangsters, a Mafia chief who broke all the rules, reveled in the public spotlight and, at least for a while, seemed untouchable with his multimillion dollar illegal operation that thrived on prostitution, extortion, gambling, theft and drugs.

    I've been hearing the inevitability of Gotti's demise in news reports for the past year or so. I remember a news report around 12 months ago that implied he was on death's door at that time due to his cancer. Because I hadn't heard anything in so long I thought Gotti had ordered a successful hit on the Grim Reaper and avoided death permanently.

    Of course, you know, organized crime will never go away, and the mob certainly won't be decimated by Gotti's demise. Whoever is in charge now will probably never be brought to light until it becomes convenient for the police to actually care about it

    Oh, we already know who's in charge now, my friend. Well, at least this group minus Big Pussy (on the left), who's already sleeping with the fishes. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
