Anthony Junior: I know this is hard for you to believe, but food may not be the answer to every problem.

One answer may be found in a quick scene at the Bada Bing: A stripper descends from above, upside down and arms to her side—almost like an upside-down crucifix—while the Virgos Merlot song exclaims “I wait for no one, no one comes.”  If we’re waiting for Jesus to come and save us, we may be waiting in vain.
