Zur Zeit lese ich das Buch “Wise Guy” von Nicholas Pileggi. Es ist die Romanvorlage von Martin Scorseses meisterhaftem Goodfellas und basiert auf der wahren Geschichte des Gangsters Henry Hill. Kleiner Auszug:
“Morton, for instance was a friend of Paulie’s. He must have fronted for lots of wiseguys. But he also had to pay back a certain amount every week to his partners, and they didn’t care wether business was good or bad. That’s the way it is with a wiseguy partner. He gets his money, no matter what. You got no business? Fuck you, you pay me. You had a fire? Fuck you, you pay me. The place got hit by lightning and World War Three started in the lounge? Fuck you, you pay me.”
