Where the Hell Is Omaha?

I was just reading Valachi Papers and one passage was too funny not to share. I hope you will enjoy it as well :)

The passage starts by describing a Senate hearings of one Valachi, the first Cosa Nostra insider that gave informatio to FBI, the person who actually first confirmed that the name of the organized crime organization was Cosa Nostra, indeed. And then it continues:

"... Nebraska\'s senator Carl Curtis asked Valachi about the state of organized crime in Omaha. After a moment\'s reflection Valachi carefully cupped his hand over his mouth, turned to a Justice Department official sitting next to him and whispered something. Those viewing the scene could be forgiven for supposing senator Curtis had hit on a matter of some importance which Valachi wanted to check out before answering.

He was in fact asking, " Where the hell is Omaha?"
