you make it sound like a bad thing...at least he's not alluding to the serial sodomization and sexual abuse of young boys at the hands of the Catholic Church; liquor in the front, poker in the rear...

Why does anyone become a saint? The Church votes for them to become one.

It's a purely invented and imaginary title, so theoretically I could be one.

Agreed. Ron Serpico took his criminal father and after his death elevated him to hero status in the community and gave him a memorial on state paid for land.

His new title is no longer felon.....but now hero. And now Fat Ronnie has a standing political advertisement for all to see. He is just carrying on his fathers good work. Not!
