    As a history buff and someone who loves reading old newspapers, I’ve noticed that it was fairly common for the newspaper to mimic the subject’s ethnic language. Whether being African-American, Chinese, Hispanic — and in this case, Italian, they made sure that you got the “full story.”
    Of course, that was way before the days of ‘political correctness” and why I’m sure, is one of the reasons why White America has such a disdain for it.
    It’s just no fun any more when you can’t mock foreigners.
