Here’s an interesting story from Italy, posted Thursday on GlobalPost:
“From lands freed from the Mafia,” reads the light blue pack of penne rigate pasta on display among dozens of other products in a dedicated shop in Via dei Prefetti 23, in the heart of Rome. To understand that label, travel 250 miles as the crow flies south, to Sicily.
Turns out that lands confiscated from mafia members have been turned to good use - an agricultural cooperative is selling products such as pasta, olive oil, tomatoes an wine, all from fields not far from the town of Corleone, Sicily.

Speaking of the mafia, how come there are no good mobster outfits for kids to wear when trick or treating. They’d sure get a larger bounty than with those goofy monster costumes.
Happy Halloween and don’t forget to brush your teeth when it’s all over…
