As everyone is beginning to find out, James
Gandolfini passed today and I would like to extend my deepest
condolences to his family, friends and anyone who was affected by his
immense gifts as an actor. Among a bazillion other folks, Gandolfini
pops up in my book Godbolt in one of Chris Bontey's drug withdrawal
sequences, as, what else, a mobster in a revamped version of the
Goonies. RIP James Gandolfini.
