    That depends on how you define a state, An Italian. Is Sicily less of a state than California? And do Californians regard California as a state? I think they do.

    Unfortunately Sicily is not a state…

    @Mike
    I think you’ve answered your own question…
    Would you ask for demand from the Mafia?

    Good to see they’ve realised some parts of the US are near bankrupt but from what friends there tell me, New York City is actually in a far worse state(sic) than California.
    And how can Sicily go bust – I thought Pistorio and/or ST owned part of it and the Mafia the rest :-)
