Mother of Mercy, is this the end of Russo?
by Carl Russo
AFTER FIVE YEARS of posting articles about Cosa Nostra and related photographs, it’s time to unplug Mafia Exposed—at least for now. I find it difficult to keep a regular schedule of producing these pieces, which require long hours of research, translation, and editing. It’s also quite expensive to make my archive of photographs available online, and to keep the whole thing free of advertising.
Mafia Exposed, however, will maintain a web presence on Twitter, Facebook and Google+, so please follow me there. If anything, I’ll post more frequently than I have on this blog, in shorter form that leaves me time to pursue other projects (some crime-related, others utterly unrelated). I feel the birth pangs of another blog or website for the near future, so please stay tuned via social media.
For now, I thank everyone who has purchased my book, come to the signings, contributed to the conversation, and offered hot tips about Mafia ne’er-do-wells and their families. (I know that the relatives of most-wanted godfather Matteo Messina Denaro will be broken up over the closing of this blog.) Lights will dim around February 10 or so.
I may still be contacted at Carl[at]MafiaExposed[dot]com for press interviews and generous offers of textual employment. Arrivederci a presto!
