Jimmy Breslin who wrote a book whose title fits someone and his minions today perfectly, The Gang Who Couldn't Shoot Straight.
Breslin was an underrated writer, IMHO, a columnist (mainly) whose acerbic wit and very terse style-- almost like Hemmingway in that respect-- was unique and to me very entertaining. Anything that he wrote which I read was enjoyable and usually thought-provoking as well. RIP Mr. Breslin.
