I haven't commented on my favorite television show in a while, so here goes. Last night's Sopranos was one for the ages. Good gosh, it was funny. The overarching theme seemed to be lies and excuses, with many bad events being blamed on "Unidentified Black Males," which was the title of the episode. Tony S. repeats the lie about black guys killing Joey Peeps. Even Meadow repeats the lie that black drug dealers killed her ex-boyfriend, Jackie Jr., whose sister accurately portrayed her brother's assailant as "some fat fuck in see-through socks." The kicker is when Tony S. reveals to Melfi his long-secret lie about something he has always blamed on a couple of unidentified black guys. The truth is far more interesting.
