WHENEVER WE NEEDED MONEY, WE'D ROB THE AIRPORT. TO US, IT WAS BETTER THAN CITIBANK:  Henry Hill, the real-life gangster turned FBI informant whose life was captured in Nicholas Pileggi's book Wiseguy and then Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, has died after a long illness at age 69.

Hill was kicked out of witness protection during the early 1990s for committing too many crimes; once a gangster, always a gangster.

    I read Wiseguy as a result of this post.  I can recommend it even if you love love love the movie.
