The Nation

January 13, 1986

The Gambino organized-crime family has replaced its former leader, who was slain last month, with a man convicted of manslaughter and accused of racketeering, according to a report in the New York Times. John Gotti has taken over the post after the slaying of Paul Castellano outside a Manhattan restaurant, the article said. President Reagan also was in the news concerning crime--under his own byline. He declared in a magazine article in the New York Times on organized crime that "for the first time in our history, we finally have the mob on the run."
