He was a number king and later controlled a large part of Harlem's eastern seaboared rackets, during the early 1940's he was crime boss over the notorious "Red" Dillard Morrison and thought of as the most likely successor to Ellsworth "Bumpy" Johnson's colonial power but instead he slipped into obscurity, the rise and fall of legendary gangster "Big Joe" Richards ("Big Joe" Icen, "Big Joe" Ison...)

Good morning...hey oldtimer, thank you. Reading this site for about a year and I don't remember anyone but me ever mentioning Earnest Goodoctor, Goodoctor, even though a friend of mine, was the most feared person I ever knew!!! And please don't misunderstand me, i'm not claiming to be a bad ass but this MF'er stood 5 foot 6 at the most and I have seen him. Make some bad mothers quiver in their boots, although Red D was no slouch by any means, I have to admit that the two craziest people that I had the good fortune to be friends with both were small in stature, Earnest Goodoctor and Ricky Dukes, how both of them lived past thirty is a mystery to me, when I read about Ricky's demise I broke down and cried like a baby. I gotta go, my computer crashed last night and the Comcast people are on their way most likely to claim it was the fault of the computer and not their service!!
Oldtimer I hope you enjoy reading my book, I am very happy that it was so well received, being a part of that era yourself you will laugh a lot about some of the things in it, you have my email address (gasparvetrano@aol.com) feel free to drop me a line, I think we would have good conversation. Peace

To All, My computer crashed night before last and while I have recovered somew of my stuff I lost most of it, naturally COMCAST said it was my tower that blew out their modem and not the other way around so I had to suck it up and have the service charge put on my next month's bill, the point being I have been in touch with some great people on this site so to all that I have been in touch with please email me at www.gasparvetrano@aol.com so I can make sure we stay in touch, Butch< I lost your email address, I have your phone number in my cell but that is all, there is a young brother that I met on this site that told me to go to gmail and I could back up everything but I didn't listen and am fu**ed. Hey OLDTIMER still waiting for you to email me, I think we could have some old time good talk.
Peace

Gstax, I remember the night I met Georgie Flu. I had just come home from the Nam and went straight to my cousin Jesse's house at 1809. Georgie had just came home on bail for a well, we'll just say he had just came home from the Tombs. When I walked in his mother , Ms. Sylvia and my Aunt Rosa Lee were sitting at the kitchen having their White Label. At that point like Freddy said "it was off to the races".
