    The Mind Of A Bronx Teacher

    in Education

    The guest will be me, The Bronx Teacher. Hey, I have interviewed many a guest, many a newsmaker, but this Tuesday, May 17, @ 9 PM EDT I will fly solo and rant and maybe rave and open up with what is on my mind.
    Why is it that I do what I do?
    Why do I feel that E4E (Educators4Excellence) is evil?
    Why is Ruben Brosbe a douchebag?
    Why do I pick on Whintey Tilson?
    There will be some attempted surprises as well.
    So tune in this Tuesday night at 9 PM EDT and listen and be fascinated.

    A Bronx Tale, 1993

    in Movies

    Gangster Sonny is the big man in the Bronx neighborhood of an Italian small boy named Calogero. A shooting witnessed by the boy (nicknamed C) is the starting point of a lasting bond between the gangster and the boy. Father (bus driver Lorenzo), however, disapproves. C grows up under the wing of both men, torn between his own natural honesty and his fascination with Sonny. C's neighborhood cronies get involved in theft, use of guns, and racial fights. When C falls for an African American girl, things don't get any easier. C's leap to manhood is marked by tragedy, but also by his recognition of the many faces of love.


    Starring:


    Robert De Niro...(Lorenzo)


    Chazz Palminteri...(Sonny)


    Lillo Brancato...(Calogero, age 17)


    Francis Capra...Calogero (Age 9)
