Johnny is a strange bird. Even by the sociopathetically perverse standards of ISIS/ISOL he's alone on an Looney Douchebag Island.
John was thrust into the international spotlight on the strength of such hits as the James Foley execution, the murder of a Japanese journalist, and the playful open dialogue with President Obama.
But where's the residual value to these acts. A little buildup. A smattering of horror. But really. Stephen King was doing superior work in his attic as an adolescent.
How can ISIS parlay this fleeting fame into a more enduring gesture? Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda is still the gold standard. Two buildings. Three thousand bodies. And pissing on Donald Rumsfeld's shoes all in one morning?
If terrorism is truly an art form, al Baghdadi, and by extension our boy Johnny, are still jerking each other off with finger paints. Where is the resonance? The vision? The splendor?
The only way to escape bin Laden's shadow is to ensure a third act that truly brings the house down. And of course it has to be in Gotham. Where else in the world can you guarantee CNN Breaking News Status for the next decade? Only in Anderson Cooper's backyard.
Travel documents? Check. Appearance altered? Check. Safe house on Queens? Check.
Zoe Scarlatti in town ahead of a Monday meeting? Whoops!
The Z-Spot Diaries catalog Zoe Scarlatti's life as a "cleaner" at the height of her powers. But now politics is creeping into a business elegant in its simplicity.
Zoe, along with sister, Andi, want a seat at the table from where the family's multi-dimensional Organized Crime syndicate is run. The ladies have charm, skills and the ability to act decisively. But as women in a traditionally male-dominated power structure, some feathers are getting ruffled.
With Zoe's now legendary short temper, men on the make in the organization have every reason to be afraid.
