For a couple of guys who hadn’t spoken since Ronald Reagan’s first term, Whitey Bulger and Johnny Martorano didn’t look very happy to see each other. They barely looked at each other in federal court.
The last time they were together Whitey talked Johnny into killing his friend. Johnny was on the lam at the time and flew up from Florida. Whitey and his partner in crime, Steve Flemmi, drove down to the Marriott at LaGuardia Airport. It was no random choice. Johnny knew somebody who could get him a Marriott discount.
