Legal Mafia?

I saw in the paper where they
want to make sure these payday
loan stores don't charge anymore
for interest than they do for the

I was horrified by the percent they wanted
to lower it. That was 36%.

My shock came from the fact I was raised
with Mafia in our state.
We had loan sharks. And that was not legal.
Also there was a Mafia run game called
Numbers. Usually each bar had some one
where you could place a bet on a series
of 3 numbers. That was also illegal.

Things sure have changed... because
Numbers sure sounds like Lottery run by the state.
And loan sharks sure sounds like PayDay Loan Stores.
