The Sting
Written by Steve Dittmer

AFF Sentinel Vol.7#8
Paul Newman and Robert Redford did only two movies together: "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "The Sting." Both were classics but the memory of "The Sting" has really spoken to me the last couple days as events unfold in Washington.

For those who didn't see or can't recall the movie, Redford and Newman were con men who set up a phony bookmaking operation in the 1930s. The "mark," a Chicago-style tough guy who liked the ponies, was carefully "allowed" into the private betting parlor, set up with "inside" information a few times to make sure his horses won and cheerfully paid his bets, proving the operation was worthy of his "confidence." I won't give away all the plot - it's a movie well worth renting - but rest assured when the tough guy finally begged to put down a gargantuan bet - which the parlor very "reluctantly" accepted - the tough guy found out the parlor he trusted couldn't be. His horse didn't come in, the payoff window was closed and his money was gone forever.
