I thought the principal characters in Casino and Goodfellas (Henry Hill, Jimmy Conway, Tommy, Sam Rothstein, Nicky Santoro, etc.) were the characters running around trying to scrape together a living while the fat cats live out their huge Greek tragedies.

That reminds me of one of Mencken's great quotes: "a cynic is someone who, when he sees flowers, wonders who has died." (paraphrased)

Perfect timing. The morning news is usually too late for me and this is most definitely Ice Cube's best track. Except maybe Dead Homiez or No Vaseline.
