The Death of a Third Mario

As I have written previously, there have been two political deaths this year of men named Mario. The first was former New York Governor Mario Cuomo in January and the second was the death of former congressman Mario Biaggi in June. Deaths happen in threes, so which Mario may be the third to be taken from us this year? As I have done some research, I have narrowed it down to two likely contenders. The first, as I’ve mentioned previously, is the ECB (European Central Bank) President Mario Draghi. With the chaos ensuing Greece and the entire European Union at this very time, his life may be more at risk than ever before. This isn’t going to end well for him regardless, but assassination may be drawing itself near to him due to his reckless actions on the Euro’s behalf. The second, as I have later discovered, is Congressman Mario Diaz Balart. He’s actually in even more danger now with his fights with Donald Trump making major headlines around the world. Trump attracts a lot of whackos and anyone who may have a problem with Balart’s support for immigration reform may be subjected to a furor that unleashes an assassination on Balart’s life. Either way, one of these two men, or perhaps another man I’m not thinking of at this time, is at risk for becoming the third Mario death this year. They may need to watch their backs if they know what’s good for them.
