Oh yeah, Jonas Broncks.  He was a character in that movie with, oh..what's
his name?

Looking forward.

I grew up in Manhattan and "Da Bronx," (yes, you're supposed to say it like
that) and agree with Ruth's comments below. Some people even call it "The
Boogie Down Bronx".  It is fun to hear about other's backgrounds.  I knew
about Bobby Jax because we had some fun conversations but...Arturo?  They
let him in?  LOL. Must've been how "we got the flava up in here!"

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
