Henry Hill was the inspiration for Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” mobster. Henry Hill recently died at the age of 69, after a long battle with a serious illness. The nature of the sickness was not released to the public. He died in a hospital in Los Angeles, California. Hill’s girlfriend, Lisa, said that Hill had been sick for quite some time and that his heart had finally given out. Scorsese based one of his characters for the movie “Goodfellas” on Hill. In the movie “Goodfellas”, a crime family was seen making away with $5 million and jewelry that totaled $875,000. For the time, that was a record heist, and it was performed at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in 1978. Continue reading

While crunchy and earthy are not normal culinary descriptions for one’s favorite things to eat, Teresa Widener’s favorite snack crunches on her teeth as she eats rocks. This week’s episode of the cable TV show “20/20” spotlights Widener, the mother of two and a special needs teacher who says she likes the earthy flavor and crunchy feeling when she eats rocks.
According to Widener she does not wash them and sometimes sucks the dirt off the rocks she eats and other times she cracks the rocks into bite size pieces with a hammer. Widener suffers from a behavioral and mental health condition called “pica.” A clinical social worker and therapist, Dr Jordana Mansbacher, who holds a specialty in eating disorders to include pica, says patients who suffer from the condition will eat toilet paper, fabric, carpet, paper, wood, clothing, skin, and metal or just about anything.

By that I mean that he is giggling away in his Spiderman garb while his mother complains complains complains. Continue reading
