The majority of America's print and TV media seems to have gone way overboard reporting the untimely passing of Sopranos star Gandolfini. The Daily Herald was one of the few papers that didn't sensationalize the news item as a front pager.

It was gracefully noted with a short paragraph in the inner pages.

"The Sopranos" series was a continuation of the ever-prevailing stereotype generated in films that crime is an exclusive Italian-American entity, while thousands of informed Italian-Americans and others are cognizant of the fact that Italian-Americans commit less than 0.1 percent of attributable crime or even know the first crime fighter was an Italian-American who gave birth to the FBI.

Thinking Americans might also question why a lot of the media has rubber stamped "The Sopranos" series as being a great "art" series.

Every episode was profanity laced and featured many cruel murders, sexual aberrations and never-ending crudities.

What has happened to our values when many Americans found the series so entertaining?
