Are the Zangaras descendants of Guiseppe Zangara who assassinated Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak and tried to kill President elect Franklin D. Roosevelt, March, 1933 along Bicayne Boulevard? Just wonderin'.

Finally there is a real hobby interest story that even the great "bobby-g" can't lambast. In fact I always liked trains and I never had the fancy sets that some of my friends had. I'm not saying I didn't have a perfect chilhood but it could have been better. Thanks.

I don't know that John is ready to open his private home for strangers, but if you wnat to see a model train layout come on down to Aventura Mall. The Mall has a HUGE one there and it's free to come check it out. It's on first level by JC Penney, west end of the mall.
16 x 29 feet with 5 tracks, 6 trains and a seperate trolley too. Lots of animations! Bring the kids of ages it will be up through February 2008.
