Diamonds are not a Noes best friend

Remember how in yesterday's post Legs Diamond got shot in the stomach? What?! You didn't read yesterday's post, go  ahead we'll wait....Ok, a year and a day after he caught that bullet whilst walking on the lower east side with Little Augie Orgen, Diamond was on the other side of the hit. He had an appointment 86 years ago this morning with Joey Noe & Dutch Schultz to exchange some money for territory.
     Correctly assuming that Diamond might try to pull some monkey business, Noe was wearing a bullet proof vest while Dutch and possibly a few others took positions in some nearby second story windows. As Noe approached the designated meeting spot a blue Cadillac came speeding up from behind and a guy, Louis Weinberg, opened fire on him. The assassin scored a lucky shot on Noe's body where the vest wasn't covering and the Dutchman's partner went down. Dutch, and any others, in hiding opened fire on the Cadillac, which sped away. One of the bullets from above pierced the roof of the Caddy and killed Weinberg. The car, with the dead man, was ditched on the lower east side. Noe was taken to the hospital and questioned but kept to the gangster code until dying about a month later.

I'm sure Noe was certain that Legs would get his comeuppance at some point. Which he did. Eventually.

By the way, I did read yesterday's post. That's one of the things I love about DGIS, the Thursday "Read two posts for the price of one" special. Any truth to the rumor that we might be seeing 3-for-1 specials on Fridays in November?

3-1 Fridays...will broach this at the next DGIS Institute's Group Heads meeting.

Also, am inspired by the recent Simpsons/Family Guy cross over perhaps a Nobody Move!/DGIS crossover?

PS Re: Legs comeuppance. Yes I don't think there were to many shocked people when somebody cleaned his ears with a .38
