Despite the fact that I consider myself to be a peaceful and reasonably honest person, I adore movies about organized crime and extremely nasty people. Whether it’s Edward G. Robinson playing Rico in the 1931 classic, “Little Caesar,” or the more recent Hollywood offerings “American Gangster” and “The Departed,” there is something about bad guys doing really bad things that seriously intrigues me. Perhaps it’s my inner Walter Mitty looking to escape the hum-drum life of SIP trunks, voice codecs, and contact centers, but I would like to think that I could say “You dirty rat” with the same conviction as James Cagney.
