    The more I think about last season, the more I realize how impressive and terrific the show was. Here's the trailer for S2:

    Yea, Michael K. Williams was sorely underused last year. Im also curious to see what kind of role Capone and Luciano will play next season.

    Amazing show, I love how they spend millions on the sets.

    I guess Dabney Coleman's character gets better? Unless that was a flashback scene.
    Van Alden plays a great creep, can't wait to see what he'll be up to. Meyer Lansky cracks me up in this, it's a small role but that accent makes me laugh every time. He's the Jewiest of the Jewy Jews.

    Dabney Coleman's character was being poisoned. No surprise he is better and helping his son take the reins.

    Can't wait for the new season. Although this is why I hate seeing previews for the fall shows so early in the summer.

    This show is like the United Nations of gangsters..

    We got scwhoogs, mics, heebs, and ginzos.. simply fantastic.

    I hear that Damien from "Rescue Me" will be playing Bugsy Segal this season. Hopefully he will do a better job then Warren Beatty.

    Probably the week after the True Blood finale. That's how they usually roll.

    Crackers? Really? Was that a term for whitey in 1920?

    Apart from that, I'm amped for the premiere.

    Or Richard Grieco.

    Yes it was. In the 1950s', it was peckerwood. "Whitey" didn't started getting used until the 1970s'.

    I cant wait for the new season!!! Love the olde time set & garb.

    Peckerwood (or simply Wood) is a pejorative slang term coined in the 19th century by southern Black Americans to describe poor whites. Blacks saw blackbirds as a symbol of themselves, and the woodpecker as a representation of working class whites. They considered them loud and troublesome like the bird, often with red hair similar to the bird's red plumes. This word is still widely used by southern blacks to refer to southern whites.

    In the 1940s, the abbreviated version "wood" entered California prison slang, originally meaning an Okie; but in about 1970 it became applied to white inmates as a whole, regardless of background. This has caused the symbol of the woodpecker to be used by white power skinheads. Many white supremacists identify themselves as peckerwoods, with women referred to as featherwoods. It is usually drawn with a long beak, sometimes drawn to resemble Woody Woodpecker. Sometimes the letters "PW" or "APW" (Peckerwood and American Peckerwood) is used. The peckerwood gangs are concentrated in Tujunga, where they trade in methamphetamine.

    The exact etymological relationship between "peckerwood" and "woodpecker" is unclear. It is reported that in some Appalachian dialects, "peckerwood" is the normal word for "woodpecker" (possibly as part of a larger grammatical pattern); from this, it is speculated that speakers of other dialects may have applied this word to speakers of that dialect as a form of metonymic derision. (Cf. the speculated etymology of **** from "no **** English".)

    Other uses
    Peckerwood is also a place name in the musical Mame.

    The prisoners' cemetery at Leavenworth Prison in Kansas is known as Peckerwood Cemetery.

    The prisoners' cemetery at Sycamore Street and Bearkat Boulevard in Huntsville, Texas is known as Peckerwood Hill. The largest of many prisoner cemeteries operated by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, its formal name is the Captain Joe Byrd Cemetery. The nickname came about because most of the prisoners buried there were poor whites. The 22-acre facility is still in use and has graves dating back to 1870. It is also the burial place of Kiowa Chief Satanta, imprisoned in 1871 by the United States after a raid on a wagon train.

    Peckerwood Creek is a tributary of the Coosa River in Alabama. This has also been suggested as an origin of the pejorative.

    In Robert Ferrigno's Prayers for the Assassin, the citizens of the Bible Belt are referred to as "peckerwoods" by their neighbours in the Islamic Republic to the north.

    I had a funny feeling peckerwood was used before the 1950s'. But I said the 1950s' because of that one scene in Back to the Future.

    Now I have to watch the whole movie over again in a minutely different context.

    (Seriously had no idea that word meant that. Some 50s version of Beavis and Butthead could have popularized it for all I knew)
