Bismarck, Sinclair, and Me: Please Support WEJB/NSU!


Bismarck, 1871
 

Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898) famously said, “Je weniger die Leute davon wissen, wie Würste und Gesetze gemacht werden, desto besser schlafen sie.”

“The less the people know about the making of sausage and laws, the better they’ll sleep.”

Conversely, Upton Sinclair’s (1878-1968) most famous book, The Jungle, published in 1906, was about the making of sausage in Chicago’s stockyards. Sinclair’s book, while fiction, was supposedly very realistic about the awful conditions under which sausage was made, and led to the passage of the first consumer laws.

Today’s entertainment and news media split the difference, by producing “realistic” propaganda fiction and “fearless,” “courageous,” fake news that is now hagiography, now demonography, depending on whether a work is about one of the media’s friends or enemies.

The majority of mankind, whatever they may say, follow Bismarck in practice. However, there is still a substantial market, at least in what remains of the West, for muckraking. That is my market.

In 1996, I wrote the first national exposé on statistical fraud by the NYPD regarding crime stats, for Chronicles magazine.

In 1997, I published two exposés on Ebonics (here and here), the latter of which, an editor with great expertise called the “most thorough” ever written on the subject. The editor in question later asked me to please never mention his name in connection to my work, as he had changed professions, and didn’t wish to commit career suicide.

In 1998, I published (as “Robert Berman”) what would remain for many years the state-of-the-art whistleblower report on politicized grading in higher ed, for the scholarly journal, Academic Questions.

From 1997-1999, also as “Robert Berman,” I published a series of eight or nine whistleblower reports on the City University of New York system for Chronicles, the weekly standard, the New York Post and Daily News.

In 1998, I also published the first national exposé on New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s fraudulent welfare reform, for Middle American News.

Well, you get the idea. Since then, I have broken news in countless other investigative reports for Middle American News, VDARE, American Renaissance, The Social Contract, and even on my own blog!

Yet Another Formerly Traditional Institution Gives a Big Middle Finger to Its Supporters: Colonial Williamsburg Adds Homosexual and Sexual Psychopath Re-Enactments

Colonial Williamsburg Adds gay and "transgender" Re-Enactments




 
 
Mon, August 30, 2021, 1:27 PM
Colonial Williamsburg is bringing a slice of gay and transgender history to life this Fall.
Starting in October, a new musical called Ladies of Llangollen will be featured, based on diary entries, letters, and poetry of two women who ran away from Ireland and eloped in Wales during the 18th century.
The Colonial Williamsburg foundation created a Gender and Sexuality Diversity Committee in 2019 with the purpose of researching gay and transgender issues in the colonies. The result of the committee found multiple instances of lesbian and transgender people in the early years of America's founding.
The question in front of the researchers that framed the committee was: "What is the Western population's view on sexuality and gender and how did they determine who was a man and who was a woman?"
The goal was to piece together a more complete history of gay and transgender people in colonial times, according to the Virginia Gazette.
According to researcher Ron Tolson, more gay and transgender men and women were accepted than expected in Williamsburg.
Tolson gave multiple examples of transgender and lesbian couples in the colonies and Europe. In one case, a woman who requested a marriage license to another woman was rejected and was told marriage was only between a man and a woman. She came back the next day with a haircut and dressed in men's clothing, and the license was approved.
"It's not that the information isn't there, it's that it hasn't been properly researched and a lot of other groups are overrepresented in the historic record," Tolson said. "We just assumed that people had similar ideas as current day and moved on but that's not entirely the case."
Another example was of an indentured servant named Thomas Hall, who was born Thomasine in England. At the age of 22, Hall joined the British Army and moved to Virginia under the name of Thomas. Hall wore both men's and women's clothing, and when suspicion arose from neighbors, there was a court case. The verdict of the case was that Hall was both a man and a woman.
The research was not without its challenges. Because this was not the dominant narrative, reports were buried, and alternative language was used. This meant researchers had to decode the language and learn a whole new set of terminology. Additionally, there were many fires at courthouses in the 17th and 18th century which destroyed a lot of court cases.
The research is still ongoing, and Williamsburg said they have plans to introduce other gay and transgender programs to their itinerary.

They were Expendable: The Book, Part II

[Re: “Indispensable: The Book (1942), Movie (1945), and Back Story to They were Expendable]

One incident that is only mentioned in passing in the book, and completely cut from the picture, I suspect found its way into the screenplay of the great, glorious mess of a picture, Ken Annakin’s The Battle of the Bulge (1965), written by Philip Yordan, Milton Sperling, and John Melson.

The incident from Expendable concerned an unnamed, young lieutenant, who although not empowered to do so, gives the orders to blow up a fuel depot, in order to keep it out of the Japs’ hands.

“A curious thing happened during those closing hours [before the Japanese invasion of the Philippines]; nobody had given orders to blow up the oil reserves. Maybe some of them belonged to private companies; it would go against a businessman’s grain to blow up good oil. Finally a little junior-grade naval lieutenant noticed it. He had no authority, but he gave orders he had no right to give, and presently the oil was blazing. I hear he got a Navy Cross for doing it.”

One of the most moving subplots of Bulge concerns the coming of age of a spoiled, callow, young officer, (surely Second) Lieutenant Weaver (James MacArthur), who has a personal minder, Sgt. Duquesne, played by George Montgomery.

Not only was George Montgomery (1916-2000) a WWII combat veteran (U.S. Army Air Forces), but although he was old enough to be James MacArthur’s (1937-2010) father, he looked and sounded like he was ready, willing, and able to sign up and fight another war!

Sgt. Duquesne’s role, as he tells Lt. Weaver, is to keep him alive. Duquesne dies on that mission, due to Weaver’s poor judgment, and yet the effect of the older man’s sacrifice forever changes the younger man’s life (think Saving Private Ryan). He realizes that he is responsible for his enlisted men’s lives, and starts carrying himself like an officer in the best sense.

In the climactic scene, he finds himself at a fuel depot, with German Panzer Colonel Robert Shaw bearing down, at the head of a column of Panzers, desperate for the fuel. Lt. Weaver orders the enlisted men guarding the depot to light it up. “But who’s giving the orders?” one of the GIs asks. “I’m giving the orders,” replies Weaver, with firm, calm assurance.

In R.G. Collingwood’s 1937 work, The Principles of Art, he observed that artists are all thieves, constantly stealing from each other.

This is certainly apparent in the history of pictures, and especially war pictures and TV shows.

In a classic episode of the WWII-set series, Combat! guest starring Lee Marvin, “The Bridge at Chalons,” Marvin’s character, Sgt. Turk, a miserable cuss of a munitions expert sergeant, goes on a mission with series co-star, Sgt. Saunders (Vic Morrow). Although Saunders has no use for the arrogant, superior Turk, he almost gets killed saving his life and the mission. Marvin mocks him, early on, as “a mother hen looking after her chicks,” but the show ends with the wounded man chasing away the “mother hen,” and grudgingly telling a corpsman from his hospital bed, “You know something? I’m going to have to put him up for the Silver Star”—and making it believable.

Several years later, during a TCM Memorial Day marathon, I caught a 1950s B-picture, in which one infantry sergeant referred to a colleague as a “mother hen...”

Nurse Peggy is juggling two lovers at the same time. Each afternoon for weeks, she takes “a long walk” with Lt. Robert B. Kelly. To help the healing process. And each night, when her medical officer official boyfriend is on the island, she sees him. How she managed to keep her “beau” from learning about Kelly, we never learn. Indeed, William L. White keeps a straight face about the whole thing, as if nothing untoward were going on, and as if Peggy and Robert had never so much as kissed.

Kelly emphasizes the complete lack of privacy on the entire island, I believe, as a cover story for his love affair with Peggy. Healthy, passionate, young lovers will find a way to make love, whether it’s in a hospital supply closet, an unused office, or up against a tree in the woods.

Kelly, as an officer and a gentleman, never uses any language about Peggy stronger than that he “liked” her.

Recalling her steady hand with a flashlight, in an otherwise dark operating room, while under Japanese bombardment, Kelly observes, “Hell of a fine, nervy girl to have in a war. Or any other time.”

Lt. John D. Bulkeley, for his part in personally shepherding General of the Army Douglas MacArthur from the Philippines to Australia in Bulkeley’s PT boat, in an area swarming with Japanese fighter planes, bombers, reconnaissance planes, cruisers, destroyers, and other warships, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, and kicked all the way up to lieutenant commander, the same rank that Robert Montgomery, the PT boat skipper who would play him in the picture, ultimately attained. (Bulkeley was escorted by Kelly’s PT boat, and one other boat that didn’t make it.)

Bulkeley was convinced that MacArthur had to be secreted out safely to Australia, because he was the only Army general brilliant enough to get us back in the Philippines as victors. Meanwhile, Bulkeley, 30, was the only PT boat skipper whom MacArthur was confident could safely get him, his family, and his servants out of there.

MacArthur’s escape from the Philippines takes up a large part of the book, and is also the occasion for Kelly and Peggy’s farewell. Peggy, over a field telephone to Kelly: “Well, it’s been awfully nice, hasn’t it?” “And her voice had sounded clear and brave, but seemed to come from far away.”

Harcourt, Brace, and Company published White’s work very quickly, it became a bestseller, and MGM purchased the movie rights for John Ford.


The Wild Bunch I: The Professionals (1966), a Review


From left to right: Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale, Lee Marvin, Robert Ryan and Woody Strode
 

Wild Bunch I

By Nicholas Stix
Wednesday, April 7, 2004
The Critical Critic


Ever since Sam Peckinpah made The Wild Bunch in 1969, he has been credited with creating a unique, poetic, western masterpiece about the passing of a certain time (the late 19th century), place (the “West,” specifically the American Southwest and Mexico), and type of man (a criminal or gunslinger with a code of honor). And The Wild Bunch IS a masterpiece – but it is not unique.
 

 

Its ballet of slow-motion blood came from Arthur Penn’s 1967 instant classic, Bonnie and Clyde. And much, much more, in terms of story, place, and atmosphere – hard men hired to go on a violent mission to Mexico – came from this 1966 movie, which Richard Brooks directed and wrote, based on Frank O’Rourke’s novel, A Mule for the Marquesa. An honest assessment of either movie requires that one discuss the other. Of The Wild Bunch, because it owes so much to The Professionals; of The Professionals, because it has largely, and unfairly, been relegated to obscurity, due to the legendary status of The Wild Bunch.

The Professionals has a dream cast – the four men of the title are played by Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, Robert Ryan and Woody Strode. But there’s so much more – in those politically incorrect days, Italian star Claudia Cardinale could play a Mexican spitfire (“Maria Grant”), while Jack Palance could portray a Mexican revolutionary (”Raza”). Ralph Bellamy plays railroad tycoon “J.W. Grant,” whose Mexican wife, Maria, has been kidnapped, and Marie Gomez plays yet another spitfire (“Chiquita”). (Note that the spitfires are both handy with six-shooters.) The story unfolds ca. 1921, under the shadow of Pancho Villa (1878-1923) and the recently concluded Mexican Revolution (1910-1920).

The four men of the title – experts in explosives (Lancaster, as “Bill Dolworth”), weapons (Marvin, as leader “Rico Fardan”), horses (Ryan, as “Hans Ehrengard”), and tracking and using a bow and arrow (Strode, as “Jacob Sharpe”) – are hired to rescue the tycoon’s wife, whose captor demands $100,000 ransom. The tycoon will pay the men $10,000 each, should they successfully complete their mission. But they must brave the searing heat of the Mexican desert going in and returning, and best a gang that outnumbers them over 30-1. Note that Dolworth and Fardan were expressly chosen for the mission, because they had long fought alongside Raza, for Pancho Villa.


 

Director Richard Brooks and co-star Claudia Cardinale during the making of The Professionals
 

Brooks (1912-1992), a onetime newspaperman and novelist who had a remarkably eclectic, successful career writing, helming, and sometimes producing social dramas (Blackboard Jungle, Something of Value, Elmer Gantry), westerns (The Last Hunt, Bite the Bullet), psychological stories (Lord Jim, In Cold Blood) and female-centered pictures, particularly based on Tennessee Williams plays (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Sweet Bird of Youth, Looking for Mr. Goodbar), packs enough movie into The Professionals for two and a half hours, rather than the hour-fifty it runs. (I expect that he was under strict instructions regarding length.) The story opens by deftly sketching each character in about thirty seconds, has several excellent action set-pieces -- Lancaster insisted on doing all his own stunts -- and yet, leaves time for irony, for wistfulness, for gallows humor.

At one point, Burt Lancaster’s Bill Dolworth muses, “Maybe there's only been one revolution since the beginning - the good guys versus the bad guys. The question is - who are the good guys?”

The Professionals contrasts the pretensions of what Harry Truman called the “high hats,” the rich hypocrites of “respectable” society, with the “bastards” of the gutter, and says that a prince may be a bastard, a bastard a prince … and a whore a goddess. What counts, above all, is honor.

The Professionals has several surprises, some humorous and some poignant, and a simpatico, South-of-the-Border-style score by Maurice Jarre. And some great lines.

Grant: You bastard!
Fardan: Yes, sir. In my case, an accident of birth. But you, you're a self-made man!

The acting by the four “professionals” is wonderfully natural (especially Marvin’s line readings), the work by Palance and Gomez wonderfully over the top.


 
Woody Strode as Jacob Sharpe
 

Like most great movies, particularly westerns, this movie could not be made today. Hispanic ethnic hustlers would demand that mediocre Hispanic actors play the Cardinale and Palance roles. And no black actor today would play the Woody Strode role as written, and no white director would have the cojones to make him do it. Too realistic. At the height of Jim Crow, the railroad tycoon asks Fardan, “Do you have any problem working with a Negro?” And while whites usually address Jacob Sharpe by his first name, he always addresses white men as “Mister,” as in “Mr. D” (Dolworth) and “Mr. Sheriff.” You can hate it all you want, but that’s the way it was.

Raza : How do you come to this dirty business?
Dolworth: The usual -- money.
Raza: Everything is as usual. I need guns and bullets -- as usual. The war goes badly – as usual. Only you – you are not as usual.

The Wild Bunch cannot be properly measured, without taking into consideration the standing-on-the-shoulders-of-giants factor. And even if one should still conclude that The Wild Bunch is more powerful than The Professionals, in the way that Peckinpah is poetry to Brooks’ prose, one still must give Richard Brooks his due.

(The DVD offers both full-screen and widescreen versions, cast information, the theatrical trailer, and scene selections. The sound and color resolution are excellent. Considering the lack of extras, the DVD is pricey … yet it is worth every penny.)

A long time ago, Woody Strode did a Danny Glover, claiming that white racism was cheating him out of his true greatness as an actor.

That if he were white he would be a superstar, the greatest actor of his day.

For both the Woody and Danny statements I thought the same response 15 or 20 years apart.

The only reason those 2 were in movies is because they were negros in spite of their low caliber acting ability. That further if they had been white they would not have made it.

But negros, as with white liberals substitute a preferred illusion in the stead of reality.

Immature and low IQed people tend to disavow reality in favor of the illusion that turns them from the losers that they are, into the hero of their own weltanschauung.

The white actors and Claudia in “The Professionals” were magnificent.

"Quite Expected" Swedish Report on Immigrant Over-Representation in Crime Sparks Racism Concerns

https://sputniknews.com/europe/202108261083715698-quite-expected-swedish-report-on-immigrant-over-representation-in-crime-sparks-racism-concerns/

Swedes need to be dispossessed.

I remember my visit to Stockholm in the fall of 1978.

I went to get on a city bus in Stockholm when I stopped in my tracks next to the driver.

The “Swedish” bus driver was an American, negro male!

He spoke fluent American English, too.

Apparently, he had moved to Sweden to escape either the military draft or “racism” back home.

He greeted me and me classmates warmly.

Fast forward decades later and the virtue signaling, guilt-ridden Swedes have allowed themselves to be invaded and overrun by Turd Worlders.

[Screw] ‘em.


The Pentagon Blew through 2.5 Trillion Dollars in Afghanistan in 20 Years to Supposedly Defeat the Tallywhackers...

Let's put some perspective on this. 2.5 trillion dollars was spent in Afghanistan in 20 years to supposedly fight and defeat the Tallywhackers. 20 years is 7,300 days. 2.5 trillion dollars divided by 7300 days makes that $342,465,753.42 per day.

Jim,

Careful using stock photos. Those are Afghan owned aircraft. Who ever is feeding this story is not being truthful or out and out lying. Now who paid for those aircraft? The US taxpayer via foreign aid. It all comes back to that revolving door called foreign aid. Money goes out and a good portion comes back indirectly to the very people appropriating those funds.

Lets put some perspective on this. 2.5 trillion dollars was spent in Afghanistan in 20 years to supposedly fight and defeat the Tallywhackers. 20 years is 7,300 days. 2.5 trillion dollars divided by 7300 days makes that $342,465,753.42 per day. How much of that was funneled back to congress through their shell companies?

Bluf (Bottom line up front) this was never about winning a war, folks. Wake up and understand they hoodwinked us.

A WEJB/NSU Exclusive! New York State Parole Board Secretly Released Heinous Double Murderer/Rapist on Parole, with the Aid of the msm

[“Robert Tanenbaum on the Career Girls Murders”]

By David in TN
Monday, August 30, 2021 at 4:09:00 P.M. EDT

From time to time, I check the Inmate Locator for famous murderers. I looked at the Wiki entry for the Career Girl Murders and found Ricky Robles was paroled in May 2020, at age 77. The New York State Prison inmate locator confirmed it—the Career Girl killer has been released from prison.

Robles was slipped out the door along with many others, who got out due to Covid [N.S.: At least that was the pretext]. I could find no news item on Robles being paroled. The Career Girls was a “Big” case, making it surprising that there was no notice in 2020 of the killer getting out.

Winston Moseley, who raped-murdered Kitty Genovese, died in 2016, age 81. Moseley would have been released, if still living.

Alex Berenson: The Vaxx Ain’t a Vaxx; Twitter’s Jack Dorsey: You are an Unperson! But the CDC’s Rochelle Walensky Agrees with Berenson!

By Jerry PDX

Monday, August 30, 2021 at 3:14:00 P.M. EDT

According to Berenson, it was this tweet that got him banned:

The last tweet he posted, meanwhile, accurately noted that the vaccine “doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission.”

“Don’t think of it as a vaccine,” he added. “Think of it - at best - as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS.”

“And we want to mandate it? Insanity.”

“This was the tweet that did it. Entirely accurate. I can’t wait to hear what a jury will make of this,” wrote Berenson on his substack blog, Unreported Truths.

Funny thing is, Rochelle Walensky, as NSU readers know, said something very similar on cnn (here it is, again):

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/08/cdc-director-tells-cnn-covid-vaccines-cant-prevent-transmission-video/

But does the CDC director tweet? Yes, she does:

https://twitter.com/CDCDirector?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor&form=MY01SV&OCID=MY01SV

However, while she is very much a vaccine proponent, if you read down through her tweets, amongst the “rah-rah-we-should-all-get-vaxxed” stuff, she actually refers to some of the realities and limitations of the vaccine, which reflect very similarly to what Mr. Berenson tweeted.

I don’t understand why somebody who has attained some public attention doesn’t follow the latest CDC announcements. If Mr. Berenson had, he could have included a link to the CDC video and some screen shots of some of her other press releases. I think it would have been much more difficult for twitter to justify suspending him if he had.

Indispensable: The Book (1942), Movie (1945), and Back Story to They were Expendable

By Nicholas Stix

They were Expendable was the title of W.L. White’s bestselling, 1942 non-fiction book about the earliest days of The War in the Pacific Theater of Operations, and of John Ford’s classic picture of 1945.

The Book, Part I

The book proper opens,

“‘You don’t understand,’ said the young naval officer, ‘we were expendable.’ He was very earnest as he lolled on the bunk in the officers’ quarters of the torpedo station at Newport [R.I.], along with the other three officers who had also just got out of the Philippines.

“I admitted I didn’t understand.

“‘Well, it’s like this. Suppose you’re a sergeant machine-gunner, and your army is retreating and the enemy advancing. The captain takes you to a machine gun covering the road. ‘You’re to stay here and hold your position,’ he tells you. ‘For how long?’ you ask. ‘Never mind,’ he answers, ‘just hold it’ Then you know you’re expendable. In a war, anything can be expendable—money or gasoline or equipment or most usually men. They are expending you and that machine gun to get time. They don’t expect to see either one again. They expect you to stay there and spray that road with steel until you’re killed or captured, holding up the enemy for a few minutes or even a precious quarter of an hour.

“‘You know the situation—that those few minutes gained are worth the life of a man to your army. So you don’t mind it until you come back here where people waste hours and days and sometimes weeks, when you’ve seen your friends give their lives to save minutes—”

The word “expendable” comes up again and again over the next 205 pages.

There are three main figures, all real people with real names: Lieutenant John D. Bulkeley, Lieutenant Robert B. Kelly, and a pretty, green-eyed, resourceful Army nurse named Peggy. Just Peggy. We never get her full name or her rank, but she would have been a lieutenant.

We meet Peggy in an Army hospital on Corregidor, in Manila Bay, just days after the Japs’ sneak attack. There we also meet Ensign Anthony B. Akers and Ensign George E. Cox, Jr.

Bulkeley, et. al. are the survivors, along with Henry J. Brantingham, who had been separated from them, of Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron Three. The squad started out with six plywood P.T. boats, each outfitted with four torpedo tubes, four 50-caliber machine guns and approximately 12 men (70 in all), and but a few days later, was left with five men and no boats. Most of the men died in battles with the Japs, starting the day after Pearl, and the P.T. boats that the Japs didn’t sink, had to be sunk by us, so they didn’t fall into their hands. (The book’s last pages list all of the men of MTBS3.)

Expendable.

Bulkeley is the commander of MTBS3, while Kelly is his second-in-command, and commands a P.T. boat within it.

Almost all paragraphs begin with quotation marks, because William L. White is taking dictation, or at least seeks to give that impression. He surely spent weeks editing the text, but makes minimal comments.

Kelly repeatedly mentions his feeling of betrayal at the hands of what he and the others alternately call the “Air Force” and the “Air Corps.”

(The War Department had just re-named the U.S. Army Air Corps the U.S. Army Air Forces in 1941.)

Kelly has to find out what happened to the “Air Force.” Some wounded fighter pilots have arrived. Peggy suggests he visit with and listen to them, in a different ward in the huge hospital. (In other words, she turns him into a combination intelligence operative/reporter.) That is how he learns that the Japs had virtually wiped out our Pacific fighter group.

The wounded pilots reported that on December 8th, one day after the Japs had wiped out most of our Pacific fighter squadrons on the ground at Pearl, the Jap fighter pilots had laid back in the clouds near airfields, waiting for our boys to land to refuel, at which point the Japs destroyed their planes.

Kelly got one of his hands shot by a Jap fighter plane on December 8th, tried to keep fighting, but was ordered to sick bay by Bulkeley, in order to keep from losing his entire arm to blood poisoning. It is while he’s in the U.S. Army hospital on Corregidor that he meets Peggy.

Kelly and Peggy fall in love, but (according to the text) there is nothing they can do to act on their love. Actually, according to the text, they didn’t even fall in love. No, he “liked” her, and she thought their time together was “awfully nice.” And they went for long daily afternoon walks, to help him “heal.” And Kelly couldn’t stop talking about her to White, about every time they’d spoken on a field telephone, about every little gift she’d given him, or favor she’d done for him. Everything reminds him of her.

Like the song says, “If that isn’t love, it’ll have to do, until the real thing comes along.”

There’s no privacy anywhere on Corregidor and little time, and she’s cheating on her medical officer beau to be with him. She and her 13 nursing colleagues are responsible for the health and morale of 11,000 convalescing fighting men, unbeknownst to whom each nurse has a medical officer or doctor boyfriend.

A couple of times an interviewee will observe that most of the 11,000 men getting their wounds treated by the 14 nurses on Corregidor “would have given an ear just to talk to a white girl.”

That sort of talk was cut from the picture for obvious reasons, but also, I surmise, because it would have suggested that “talking to Filipino girls” would have largely entailed contracting with prostitutes.

(Even depicting interactions between G.I.s and White girls was tricky, under the Production Code. In adapting James Jones’ epic, “unfilmable,” 1951 novel, From Here to Eternity, screenwriter Daniel Taradash had to turn the aristocratic prostitute played in Fred Zinnemann’s 1953 masterpiece by Donna Reed—Alma/Lorene—into a “hostess,” and the bordello that employed her into a “social club.” The grown-ups would have understood, regardless of whether they’d read the book.)

To be continued.
