“but already there were so many laws that a man was either a lawbreaker or a hypocrite.”
Theodore Wheeler, Kings of Broken Things

“was easiest to believe this. Who wanted to accuse a girl of lying about a thing like that? And who was saying those things about Milt anyway? Who’d believe a guy set it up to have his girl raped? Will Brown did it. That’s what most believed, what Karel thought he believed. That’s what made sense. At the dorming house there were organizers from the machine talking to boys. Just inside the door, by the manager’s office. Joe Meinhof was with them. Lining up the boys, handing out some coin.”
Theodore Wheeler, Kings of Broken Things
