Friday is here and the DGIS studio will most likely be enjoying another summer respite next week. We leave you with a reminder that 74-years ago this coming Sunday Willie Shapiro, younger brother of Meyer and Irving Shapiro, who were both eliminated by "the Combination" better known as Murder Inc. in 1931, was himself killed. Willie was eliminated for no other reason than he was a Shapiro. Lured to a bar Willie was beaten to a pulp, stuffed in a sack and then buried alive in the sand dunes of Canarsie. Nice guys those Murder Inc. fellows.
