Diary of a gangster.

As I was saying in my previous post, this is what Owney Madden wrote in his diary for a newspaper reporter:

Thursday -- Went to a dance in the afternoon. Went to a dance at night and then to a cabaret. Took some girls home. Went to a restaurant and stayed there until seven o'clock Friday morning.

Friday -- Spent the day with Freda Horner. Looked at some fancy pigeons [Madden was a pigeon enthusiast]. Met some friends in a saloon early in the evening and stayed with them until five o'clock in the morning.

Saturday -- Slept all day. Went to a dance in the Bronx late in the afternoon, and to a dance on Park Avenue at night.

Sunday -- Slept until three o'clock. Went to a dance in the afternoon and to another in the same place at night. After that I went to a cabaret and stayed there almost all night.

Give this man a blog!
