The Rat Pack - PlayInVictoria.netThe legendary Rat Pack lived and died the high life of booze, broads and bright lights, always projecting a sense of detachment and serenity.

Through it all, they always remained just outside the radar of understanding… the most distant stars in the firmament. Dean Martin’s biographer (Nick Tosches) once noted very appropriately, these guys are what the Italians call a menefreghista… “one who simply doesn’t give a damn”.
