Trivia:[edit | edit source]
- The Philadelphia Family is a real world branch of the American Mafia. Its best known boss was Angelo Bruno, who ran the family until his murder in 1980. That set off a series of mob wars, and that, along with various prosecutions and former members turning government informants, has greatly diminished its power, though it is still active.
