The Wolf Man

Friday, 14 May 2010

Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Invisible Man, and Hercules don’t scare me. The FBI, the anti-American Committee, J. Edgar Hoover, President Nixon, President Johnson, Martha Mitchell and her hus­band, or her man, or her woman, Ethel Kennedy, all the Kennedys, The Bank of America, Chase Manhattan, Rockefeller, none of these peo­ple scare me. What scares me is that one day my son will ask me “What did you do, Daddy, when the shit was go­ing down?”
