Nasty cops
Nasty communists aka red scum
Nasty gay men aka queers, faggots, etc
Nasty black people aka spooks, smokes, etc
Nasty women
Nasty mobsters
Nasty Jews who are also often nasty commies and faggots
Nasty Mexicans
Nasty wives
Nasty smackheads
Nasty sex
Nasty language
Nasty lives
Oh and also nasty dogs
If you can’t take the special oxyacetylene James Ellroy heat you better get out of the James Ellroy kitchen of hell so that’s what I’m doing, skedaddling back to wimpsville to bathe my throbbing brow and read a Penelope Fitzgerald novel where nothing happens except maybe some one chips a tea cup.
