I use 'consigliere' in several groups.
One PIP (Person of the Italian Persuasion) likes the nickname. A few people have asked what it means.
A more meaningful definition can be found at:
You can go back to the old neighborhood, but the "family" guys will have to find me first.
Yes, I'm connected, but only to the internet and to my cable company.
P.S.: And what's the deal with 'Dave'?
