Re: “In Print: the executioner's story

I remember coming home for lunch in December 1953, while attending the second grade, St Mel Holy Ghost Parish School (St. Mel Parish, Westside of Chicago). As a group of us stood on the corner of Kildare and Jackson, the funeral of Mrs. Ciucci and her three little children passed us, westbound on Jackson Blvd., on their way to final rest at Mount Carmel Cemetary in Hillside. After almost 56 years I can totally recall the punch in the stomach feeling of sadness and despair that camme over our little cluster of second grade students, as we saw into each of the hearses that the children's coffins where white. The holy nuns had us praying for the murdered Mrs. Ciucci and her children in the preceding days.

I'm sure Vincent Ciucci is now residing in a very special part of the bowels of Hell. It would be gloriously wonderful if the lementing Mr. Baumann and his foolish like minded journalist friends would be dispatched to Mr. Ciucci's side for a more intense and greatly longer interview session.
