I’ve got nothing profound to say about James “Whitey” Bulger’s capture last night in California beyond the obvious – this is big, big news.

If you want some good background on who the 81-year-old Whitey really is and why his capture matters, Tim White appeared on Fox Providence’s “Rhode Show” this morning for a debriefing. Watch:

The Boston Globe is another great resource on the Bulger story. Here’s “Black Mass” author Dick Lehr in 2007, offering five reasons why finding him is important, and here’s a four-part 1988 investigation of the relationship between James and his powerful brother, William.
