Eric Stanton:
I could go on for the rest of the night telling you about my batting average, how many times I've struck out. Even when I hit a home run, it isn't any different. Like the time in New York just before I came west. I'd started a publicity office. Like always, it was great in the beginning. Guy comes along, wants to buy the business, offered me 8,000 bucks on the line. I took it. We had a big celebration that night. In a couple ofhours I'd lost half of it back to him and his friends. I knew the dice were loaded, but I couldn't prove it. Anyway, I came west. Chicago for a while. Then Omaha. Las Vegas. That's where I dropped the other half of the dough. When I was kicked off of that bus at Walton, I only had one dollar left. And then. Ah, but why go on?
