Fight the Good Fight

Al Capone famously said: “It’s a racket. Those stock market guys are crooked.” That’s dead on. The crooked abound. Or, to be kind, I will call them ignorant. Or, to be nice, I will call them wrong. I often wonder if my great-great-uncle Frank Mast (Balys Mastauskas; my grandfather’s uncle) passed a little of that good-fight-attitude along to me. Assistant State Attorney Frank Mast is below, face to face with Al Capone at a Chicago courthouse.
