Samuel Levine always wore a kippah beneath his fedora. Born in Ohio in 1903, his bright red hair earned him the nickname “Red.” Levine was an Orthodox Jew. He ate only kosher food. And he also happened to be the preferred hitman of Lucky Luciano, the Italian-born gangster and architect of what became the American…

Dr. Sheila Nazarian Won’t Be Silenced

When Dr. Sheila Nazarian started standing up for her values online in 2021, she didn’t do it for the attention, praise or followers. After all, she already had a successful plastic surgery office in Beverly Hills, a hit show on Netflix and hundreds of thousands of fans. She didn’t have to say anything. But she…
