The Best is Yet to Come, by Chris Knopf
This is not an anthology of short stories. It contains interviews, book excerpts, interviews, and a few stories thrown in. Now on to Mr. Knopf's contribution...
Two paisans, sitting in their favorite Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, are waxing nostalgic. Bogart laments that today's hit men lack the style of the great mechanics of yesteryear. His friend Two Step agrees that contract killers just ain't what they used to be. Relevant war stories are exchanged. Then other stuff happens.
I saw where this was going, but the perfect last paragraph made it worth the trip. Very amusing tale.
