Author Raymond Arroyo Explains the Origins of Christmas Tinsel
"Had a chance to talk to my pal Raymond Arroyo, who lighten the mood a little bit for a couple of minutes. But he also has a great ability to shine a spotlight on some of these crazy issues in some of the insanity we're facing in America. Here's my chat with Raymond Arroyo, Fox News channel. Tell us what the genesis of this book. How did it come into being? Well, you know, Mike, years ago, when I was a young reporter traveling in Eastern Europe, there are trees or decked out with tinsel from top to bottom. I mean, it looks like the front of a Trump Tower or something. You know, it's old glitter and tinsel. And if you look in the bows of those trees, there are little spider ornaments jeweled spiders. And I couldn't figure every house I went to every business. They had this same setup. Well, I guess I didn't pay much attention to it. I thought they were recycling stuff from Halloween or I didn't know what they were doing. Years later, I came across a footnote during research for another book. And it says there is a legend from the second century of Mary Joseph and Jesus running into a cave on their way to Egypt. And they meet a spider who performs a special service for them. Well, it turns out that spider and this story is the origin of tinsel. I always thought tinsel was to replicate bicycles on a tree. No, it is a testament and a homage to this tale of a spider who spun a web perform this amazing service for the holy family. And you know, at the heart of the story, and the reason I think it's resonated with people so deeply in the last year and again this year is because as Mary says of the spider at one point in all of us, all are here for a reason. And no matter how small your gift, no matter how the world ignores you or tells you, you're not good enough or get over in the shadows or we don't want to see you anymore. That gift that service may be of the utmost importance. Not only to you and yours but to all of

It's today it's it's nothing like it was when raymond senior was running that operation years ago it destroyed essentially the ability for defense attorneys to question the existence of organized crime up until that moment when these cases were brought forward there could be the argument. That organized crime didn't exist that the government is overreaching. Here there is no evidence to prove it so you fall short on that standard in the criminal case will now. Here's a recording of four men taking the oath swearing loyalty to the family above their own and it was all caught on tape and so not only was it damaging to the patriarca crime family. It was damaging to all organized crime families across the country. The recording was a huge embarrassment to the patriarca crime family. After patriarca junior was indicted and sent to prison underboss. Nikki bianco assumed control. You couldn't have junior patriarca after presiding over an induction ceremony. That was caught on tape. A running the show is mob boss in again. This was the son of the legendary boss of the patriarca crime family where this happened under his watch and that was really one of the moments. That was a key downfall. I would say to the entire to the entire new england crime family. Raymond senior is best remembered as having a complex legacy despite being a ruthless crime. Boss raymond patriarca was seen as a beloved member of the providence community. The one thing is always sharpie as his difficult to explain how otherwise rational intelligent people can all look the crime part of it you know look at. What was the organized. Bottom of the organized part of it was very active in the neighborhood and reacted the community. You know little kids could walk woman.

Sort of a classic example love how despotism can be a bad thing you know. The sun did quite loved the expertise. He was not wrong. He was not without his abilities. He he did you know you you completely ineffective as but he was not his father if you want to put a sports analogy outer ring by mickey mantle and and and really was a a really good troy almost but not quite yet whereas iranian was the real deal raymond patriarca had believe it or not.

Castellano was gunned down by john guy in new york city and guide. You took over control of that ticket with family. Following patriarch is death. Raymond junior took the reins of the new england crime family but was considered a weak leader by comparison. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill right. The boston faction they smelled opportunity to take rest power from providence. A mob war ignited following the death of raymond. Ls patriarca and there were people that were aligned closely with raymond junior patriarca. That were dying. Raymond junior decided now would be a good time to try and bring the family together.

Three houses up to the fbi agents house and then the fbi staked out of house across the street where the the fbi agent was friendly with the people across the street so they could take pictures as people were coming going.

"Providence rhode island by nineteen thirty two. Both families would combine and become a force to be reckoned with. I think the thing to really understand contemptuously. About the mob in new england is it truly acted as a secondary government and that is not hyperbole. They had cops in their pockets. They had judges in their pockets. They really ran a big part of the economy in new england and they had a really truly negative impact on society here. Businesses had to pay protection payments in order to operate how those payments passed on passed on to the consumer. They were course murders happening. And don't believe the lies that they weren't involved in narcotics say absolutely revolved narcotics anyway. They could make money. They did it over time. The new england crime family would become synonymous with one cunning and ruthless leader. Raymond patrika ran a very tight. Ship was smart. He was very much in control of what he people were. More likely to turn to raymond patriarca or one of his members than they were to call the cops because they knew that or they felt that any way they probably get a better result in faster result by going to the mob boss than by going to law enforcement but one concealed microphone by the fbi would reveal all patriarch.

When we're young men. How do we channel some channels. Sometimes the natural propensity to aggression. There are beautiful ways to productively channel these things but if we don't have a father in the home raymond who do we model ourselves after so what happens with these boys is a when they have no fathers. They're angry they don't know why it's an inchoate. Anger the abandonment issues or a dad. Who just mean they're angry lot. God what did i do to deserve this by the way this separates them from god right. How do you get the father without a father and the next natural step. Raymond is an older man.

So off, we were definitely kind of at a point where we were playing very well. Things started crumbling for us a little bit after that. Obviously, if we're comparing to season the last year this year, it's not too different. I think it's just the the difficulties and adversities, we're facing are coming in a different point of year. We faced adversity, very early last year and once it kind of got the ball rolling, after that event, win things were pretty pretty steady from that. Like, our progression was was incremental. We had a few kind of step back, but not very many obviously nothing like this here and that's kind of the biggest difference. I would, I would say for the season standpoint,

She also hopes to self publish. An anthology of essays written by c. hd patients their friends and family as well as those into the hd medical field. Welcome to heart to heart with anna margaret. Allan thank you so much for having me truly grateful for this opportunity to share my story. I know this is so much fun that i want to start talking about your heart defect. Tell us a little bit more abacha heart. Like how old you were when you heard to diagnosed and if you have any memories of your surgeries hospitalizations. I was diagnosed in utera. With trump has patricia. My mom tells me the story. When i ask. She usually doesn't share stories unless i ask her. But the ultrasound technician told my mom that she was going to take one quick. Look at my heart and then the appointment would be over well as you can imagine. That quick look turned into a very long look an extra technician in the room and a follow up appointment for the eventual tight. Notice of try casper detroit. So yeah it was kinda weird. Though i mean one quick look was she suspecting something or was this just like okay. We've looked at everything else. Now let's just look at the heart do looked at everything else. Let's just look at the heart and then you'll be good to go. She really wasn't expected to see anything. Bad no no everything else looks fine. They were like okay you. Yeah and actually the same age as your son. So i was born in nineteen ninety four. Yeah i had ultrasounds gene but my tech wasn't as good as yours. They didn't pick anything up. So your poor mom Yeah yeah it was a lot. I mean the way my mom described it was that she was on the examination bed. And you know the technician was like oh just take one quick your baby's heart and my mom just said she was lingering in this one spot for really long time and my mom kept looking at her and then looking at my father. They were like what's going on. What are you seeing. And they eventually asked that question and the technician was like hold on. I need to get a second opinion and she called someone else in and then that technician who had been in the industry for really long time said yup. I think we know with this is what we need. A doctor's look and so they scheduled another follow up appointment. And that's when the diagnosis was made for parents. Had to wait They look at the speed. We are definitely had no idea. They knew it was something with the heart but they were like. We don't know i think it was two or three days before they could have that appointment which is torture. Yeah yeah definitely. I'm glad your mom your dad there because a lot of times we go to our ultrasounds without her husband's especially ambitious routine ultrasound. Yeah yeah yeah. that's that's how it was diagnosed. And i actually interviewed my mom on my youtube channel for mother's day last year. And she shared that story and several others what it was like to go through all three surgeries. That eventually saved my life. Yeah yeah absolutely. If you were born the same year that alex was you probably also had your surgery soon after birth. Yeah yeah so. My understanding is thought. The time line was just a couple of days after i was born. They did the first surgery and then the second surgery was. i believe. it's six months and the third surgery was a little after two or close to three. I actually have video on my youtube channel back. Goes through what tricuspid tree jay is and then all the surgeries that is specifically had done. And then i explain what they did in each of those surgeries with images explanations. You have really become quite the advocate. Chu yeah yeah. It wasn't always that way. But yes so. All of my surgeries were completed under the age of four. And the truth is that i remember very little. Before the age of seven so majority of people experience something called childhood nisha which is the inability to recall certain childhood memories before the age of usually four. And since i don't really recall much until the age of seven my thought is that i basically blocked out my early memories because they were too painful even the ones wet five six and seven just because i must have had residual fear of some kind and what's remained is the emotional response to anything medical and that's very much fuelled by my time in the hospital and the stories that i could share such as the time that i farted. And the monitor all went crazy and my grandmother thought something horrible had happened while she was in the room. Most of those stories are not my memories. They are stories that someone told me over and over and over again. They've been ingrained in me. But i don't actually remember them. So no i. I don't really remember anything from surgeries other than that. Residual fear that bubbles. Up whenever i think of anything medical related. Wow yeah it's interesting. First person. I've talked to and i've done a lot of interviews obviously done over three hundred. You're the first person to talk to me about childhood amnesia. Is this something that you looked up as you started to become a stronger advocate for yourself. Yes so actually. I was a psychology major in college. So yes i have that background and childhood. Amnesia is more common than you would think. And i think it throws people because of the title childhood amnesia. Like oh you hit your head. No the majority of people can't remember memories before the age of three and since most people who have see hd have surgeries before the age of three and for me. It.

He was involved with in one thousand nine thirty two charged with committing armed robbery down in massachusetts. It was a bank but the witnesses refused idea which is pretty common in these mafia cases as you guys know. He was becoming so well known by the middle thirties. That providence police had a list of criminals that they called public enemies and they could arrest him on sight and bring him in for at least a few hours and they used to do that. I even up into the fifties sometime into the middle sixties passing civil rights legislation. I remember looking up these guys records in and they would say arrested for suspicious activities. Hold for twenty four hours. Now the providence rhode island mafia family. There was two families in that area bought a boston. Which close and providence now for the providence family during the turn of the century said before many sicilians emigrated to the federal hill area. And they brought the black hand mafia with them in nineteen seventeen. A man named frank morelli. They called the betsy. I got the nickname bussey. But betsy morelli moved providence. With his family his brother. Joseph armed robbery gang. Some people claim that these brothers were the real robbers. Not saccone vans eddie. Who killed a guard and pay clerk in that famous. Nineteen twenty braintree massachusetts. Robbery were Saccone vans eddie were probably improperly charged and convicted and were sent to the electric chair. I believe during those years. Most people would consider frank morelli to be the face of the buffy in providence. Rhode island the boston family at the same time. There was a two separate messina. And joseph lombardo who were the kind of the early bosses of what they considered the entire new england area and they based out of boston during the castel. A war in new york messina was temporarily appointed as the boss of bosses of a new york and he moved up there and miss. Joseph lombardo who had been serving as underboss was start organizing several sicilian gangs. He helped eliminate the very powerful irish guston gang at the time as these men got older. Another man named felipo makola arrived in boston from palermo. Sicily now joan. I'm mardo will never really become the permanent boss. A will never really rise higher than the underboss and makola Will be come. The boss of boston now. I believe at this time. The boston family was kind of like the big brother over. Providence and the rest of new england can like chicago is over kansas city milwaukee and and anywhere in illinois and and even down to des moines iowa and to omaha according to a the famous new england. Turncoat vinnie tracer. Boston's underboss joe.

And how did you attack. well All thanks for having me on the show secondly to answer your question I was I was approached by Hideo kojima enough who designed the original game He apparently had a short list of authors. That he wanted to do it. And i guess he was a pan of my bond work because it had been published in japan and he He konami and delray. The publishers us had an agreement together to do the books so They asked me. If i'd be interested and i thought about i sure why not you know. I was somewhat a fan of the game My son played it all the time. You know i would watch him play. It and i was interested in a video game designer. Well a computer game designer back in the late eighties and early nineties. So you know it wasn't a completely foreign medium for me Now i had already written some movie novelization. In fact i am i. I'm a one of the founding members of the international association of media tie in writers which is an organization of writers who do a lot of novelization b. movies or tv or games. or whatever. And so i you know there is a there is a a forum to it. There is an art to doing it and It's it's not an easy thing to describe. I mean i would just say that A lot of its intuition. A lot of it is taking the source material laying out in front of you and breaking it down into what would basically be chapters of the books and the gone from there. Now you use to the this is based on the nineteen ninety eight storyline of the game. That came out at that. Time right the first game. Okay so So that must have been easy. At least you're not you know trying to tie everything together. Up to this point i would. That would take more than one novel. Obviously all right yeah. Yeah the planet that there hopefully will be a series of novels. We're talking about doing the second one. Now which is called sons of liberty. What amazes me is that nobody has done this as a film yet. Well i think they're probably talking about it. I don't know. I don't know what konami is plans. Are they kind of keep it close to the vest. But i'm sure that they're they're probably thinking along those lines you happy with the way things turned out after it was all done. Yeah you know it's it was fun The characters are interesting. And engaging it's you know it's very I mean it has a very much a sort of japanese mangled kind of sensibility to it. the characters are kind of fantastic with lots of Sort of extra extra abilities. And you know i just had fun with it. And i you know as long as konami and the publishers were pleased. And i'm pleased. He were intended to try to steer which stay away from that. You pretty much decided to embrace that part of what they came was. Yeah yeah absolutely and and you know. I was pretty had to be pretty faithful to the game. I couldn't go often to into uncharted territory or anything. Any new stuff that i added to the book was had to be approved of course by kojima sons. So everything in it is has gotten the seal of approval by by the man themselves. So it's it's official with the canon the canon piece go well they may convey saints cannon his cannon so there you go that's awesome so so this time you are planning the second one. Have you gotten the green light for that yet. Well we're they're they're sort of negotiating with the and And i guess you know. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and sounds like it's going to happen but you know i can't really say for sure. Does anything can happen. But i'm pretty sure it will. Will you be doing all the series or are they going to bring you know okay. I don't know it's just doing them one at a time so you have a hard day's death i. There is something appealing to me about. Kind of like a rock and roll investigator kinda p. I kinda liked it. Yeah well that that's a much more closer to the to my heart. It's a much more. I mean it is a it's mine. It's an original sure novel. Yes spike barringer the rock and roll. Detective is he is a guy who runs a security firm in new york city for Rock and roll and the like. But he's also a private eye. And i've skewed the rock and roll world to be a very dangerous place. So there's lots of murders and kidnappings in black mailings and illegal downloading and spike has to sort all of that out doesn't sound too far from the truth and you know he. They're the real rockstars you know. We'll make cameo appearances all through the books. And i've already written the second one cool. It'll it'll come out next spring. It's called dark side of the morgue nice and you have Have david bowie and john lennon making an appearance. Somehow whether in david boy definitely makes it appear as john can't make right around but he's definitely referenced..

"Welcome back to american billiard radio. Today is friday november twentieth and in news. We all expected this was coming it. Actually the the news came down today. That the twenty twenty one derby city classic was officially canceled due to covid nineteen. Keep in mind that is cancelled postponed. I spoke to greg sometime last week. And he had said that he was going to hear something this week from the state and was hoping that when they announced what they were going to do that they would be able to announce it has a postponement but he felt that he needed to have a date in mind. I'm guessing since he didn't have a date in mind. This was announced as a cancellation long-shot. Maybe something get scheduled for later in the year. And that's not due to anything that i've heard i'm just thinking you know if this thing starts to clear up. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to run something later in the year in other news. The pool tour had their twenty twenty virginia state eight ball championship. Two separate divisions men and women the men's division. Mike davis one. No big surprise there. The ladies division was won by. Liz taylor which again is not really a surprise. What was newsworthy. Was the second place finisher in each division. Shane wolford finished. Second to mike davis in the men's division and his sister savannah wolford finished second in the ladies division. I think most fans are more familiar with shane's game. Shane wolford's game but it sounds like savanna is quite an up and coming player. All the way over on the west coast arizona. The arizona women's billiards tour ray evans and brian holloway. They won the the traditional. Awb t jack and jill scotch doubles event. They holded every year as their final event of the year. It's kind of a half a tournament and half a party to celebrate the year. it doesn't sound like there was a whole lot of celebration based on the small season but it also sounds like they had a great time in other news. The sunshine state pro ampoule tour held their sunshine. State pro-am tour bar box championship. That was at racks. Billiards in sanford florida. In the winter circle was a name that most fans no raymond. raymond z. three time. acu. I collegiate champion. He's also won the apa amateur championships now. Those winds were four five six seven years ago. raymond's name is has popped up a little bit recently. But this was his his first big win. Had a chance to talk to raymond This week and i asked him about this. This first big singles win for him. Yeah this is the first big singles outright tournament. Win for me in a while I've had some some big matches. That one in the last couple years here in there when i peeked in and had some good performances against some good players. But you know this is the first i guess bigger noteworthy event. I guess in a while. What was also interesting with raymond. Was he credited this win to finally taking time out of his scheduled to get together with mark wilson. He elaborated on that. So mark mark had invited me to go to linden would for A few years it had been several years..
