I've found him a somewhat shrill defender of underdogs, wary of any marching boot sounds from his nemesis opponents. He's a hero in his own soap, another Joseph Campbell in his own way (meant as a compliment). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Campbell He claims to not know Michael Moore, but I suspect they have some shared traits.

Except Watkins is apparently focused on Michigan whereas you have this titular role of focusing on New York. You think it's all the same Mafia obviously, but that goes against some other accepted analyses, like by that Washington Post guy, who thinks we fragment into microcosms along more ecological lines. Time to dig in Google....
