they havent been the news for years, they've more or less kept hidden.

Last real major thing i can recall was Whitey Bulgar and the Irish mob here in Massachusetts. Also some mob boss in the north end of Boston (italian part) was arrested about a year or so ago, thats all i know of. For the most part they are good at staying away from media attention.

So do you pronounce your name "Costeller" or what? Been awhile since I lived in Boston, I'm forgetting the rules. My boss always called my co-worker Amanda "Amander".

That's almost a Jersey City accent too, my father and my Aunt both say "sodar" and "idear". They both grew up in Jersey City.

And "ah"s with "ar"s, right? :P Kinda like those wacky Brits. Come to think of it, my boss was from Rhode Island, which seemed to have its own kind of messed up rules. He pronounced "hot" like "hut", among other oddities that I can't quite remember now...
