And he will not say then, 'I am quits,' but will say, 'I am guilty in the sight of all men and am more unworthy than all.' With tears of penitence and poignant, tender anguish, he will exclaim: 'Others are better than I, they wanted to save me, not to ruin me!"

But strong.'Just a dumb reporter... doing his job...'He looked closely at me, eye to eye.'You grovel nicely, Mr...''Kolchak, sir.''Story. You want your story, do you, Mr. Kolchak? Your precious, pitiful story? Your bloody pound of journalistic flesh?'I smiled but it stuck halfway into a sickly grin. I was clammy. I was trembling.

Put a live chicken in your underwear. Go into a closet and suck eggs."
