That’s the question regarding this prequel to the popular HBO series, which starred the late James Gandolfini.

Something to sip

This sketch represents the time when R. Kelly's guilty verdict was delivered in New York on September 27.
The guilty verdict for singer R. Kelly was long overdue.
There had been jokes for decades about Kelly’s alleged predilection for young girls – and even the vilification of those who came forward to accuse her.

Nonetheless, women – especially black women – refused to stop seeking justice over #MeToo’s calculation.

Now Kelly faces decades behind bars after being convicted in New York on charges of racketeering, child sexual exploitation and sex trafficking.

It won’t change what happened, but I’m sure it sounds like a rationale for some.
