You said the world's bad and we can't run away from that. You're right there. But you said we can't fight it. We must deal with the badness, make terms. And then the badness deal with you. Make it's own terms, surely.
Lady from Shanghai
They threw me off the hay truck about noon. I had swung on the night before, down at the border, and as soon as i got up there under the canvas, i went to sleep. I needed plenty of that, after three weeks in Tia Juana, and i was still getting it when they pulled off to one side to let the engine cool. Then they saw a foot sticking out and threw me off. I tried some comical stuff, but all i got was a dead pan, so that gag was out. They gave me a cigarette though, and i hiked down the road to find something to eat.
