I'm still dealing with the news...

...that Tony Soprano James Gandolfini finally got whacked had a heart attack in Italy yesterday.

I'm only about two-thirds of the way through the series (I just started watching it for the first time about a month or so ago), but I'd have to say that its strength is in portraying characters with both good and bad qualities. Because, just as the most upstanding citizen you've ever met has his darker impulses, I would assume that mobsters like Soprano have a soft side as well.

The universe isn't black and white; it's shades of gray. And people are all a mix of good and bad.
