Al Capone is released from Alcatraz

On this day, November 16, 1939 my uncle Al Capone was released from Alcatraz. My grandfather had a big party for him in his home in Cicero Illinois. My mother was pregnant with me at the time.
My family realized something was really wrong with my uncle due to the so called 'treatment' he received in prison.
I was born on January 25, 1940. Al Capone was supposed to be my Godfather but he was in a hospital in Baltimore cleaning chemicals out of his blood. His son stood in for him when I was baptized.
