Ben Hricko once accused me of being the last honest card in a marked deck. Guess an ex-Catholic should know since he shuffes cards and gins the world with bits and bytes that make 5=10. But, my camera takes 1 picture 100 times. Figure that out.
Mebby I should rank on the story TAR BABY and its heroine Anita Bowers -- Sergent Bowers then and detective Captain Bowers now. She got
more bravery decorations than a Bar Mitzva and never spilled beans on some honest perp. Anita was Nickys parter then -- the first one to live long enough to make Sergeant.
In TAR BABY she's working under-cover on a snuff-film case and I was her alibi, cover, backup and FYEO boyfriend. When and how I failed and what card I finally played was
made a slippery steep by Anita and then tar-papered by LaPD. Too many big names were close to the tarpit Anita and I discovered. Mebby the shock of that case left a mark on her sense
of rightness; a guy shakes it off only to wake screaming in pitch black night. If he has a dame she makes it OKey again, but some coppers never make it outa that pit.
This PI has it easy, cause I think about Anita all the time. Will Scranton who put together this site sez simply pull up your lounge, pour a Turkey ... burn the Camel. Pick a voice.
Nicky's heard it all - your turn now.|
