I would like to officially confirm that I am not, nor have I ever been a member of the mafia. Nor for that matter have I ever been an insurance salesman.
Those who watched “The Real Goodfella” on Channel 4 this week, about Henry Hill, the Mafioso-turned-stoolpigeon whose testimony convicted over fifty Mafia members, and on whose life the Martin Scorsese film “Goodfellas” is based will have heard the following fact:
Henry Hill entered the US Federal Witness Protection Program, which moved him to Omaha, Nebraska to start a new life. His new identity was….
…Martin Lewis, insurance salesman!
I would like to point out that I am far too young to be the said Martin Lewis and if anyone doesn’t believe me, you can speak to……. my family!
