Where everybody else goes depending how they make their case to St. Peter. They either go upstairs or downstairs based on the outcome of their lives here on Earth. Where did you think they went?t

Bruce is Al Damato's creation, not Mondello's. Bruce is another version of Dan Quayle/Sarah Palin in the brains department--goes around smiling all the time while Paul M'Cartney et. al. are banging his wife like a screen door. I don't like Rice but better her than Bruce.
