Poirier was urinating on a wall on Atwater just up from Notre Dame when shot.
Griffin's brother Richard, who shared his Italianophile attitude and clothing preferences, was shot dead three years later in an unrelated incident in NDG, as he owed money to the Mafia.
These stories remind us that good bookkeeping is important.
None of this is new.
But this photo, believed to be taken a couple of years ago, has fascinated the Coolopolis interns for some time.
John Griffin is seen in prison with his wife, who reportedly bore him eight children.
It seems impossible for this to be the case, as she looks far too young and spry for a woman who has gone through all that.
But others insist that it is her. What's her secret?
Griffin, meanwhile, looks fully relaxed, much more than you yourself do right now while reading this. (WTF? - Chimples)
One is reminded of the French philosopher Albert Camus' take on drudgery and scorn, specifically his point that Sisyphus enjoys pushing the rock up the hill.
Camus claims that the only way to triumph over incarceration and other negative experiences is to enjoy the experience. As the stoics suggested, don't just accept your bad fate, embrace it.
Indeed one researcher presented studies that suggest that prisoners are not much less happy than millionaires.
