Breaking Bad is Never Good

Twenty-five year old Arthur Siegelman was a new comer to the New York City underworld who, after a short stay, vanished and was never heard from again. Siegelman had no former training in crime, in fact he was a life guard who, at the end of beach season, decided to break into bootlegging as a way to support his widowed mother and six siblings. Needless to say the neophyte gangster did not last long where the gun and knife rule. What he did to seal his fate is unknown but he disappeared on this day in 1932 and his body was never found.

He may have been a lifeguard, but it's hard to swim with cement shoes.
And he probably couldn't hold his breath long enough.
C'est la vie (or le morte). You should always stick with what you know.

Spot on for this particular on the spot. Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, why would anyone want to quit lifeguarding for bootlegging. Lifeguarding is way cooler.

Apparently you haven't seen there little known follow up single "I Want to be Your Bootlegger." featuring the catchy chorus, "I I I I I wanna be your boootlegger, I I I I I wanna sell you booze."
