One Final Bonus – Mickey Spillane Quote 

“A Commie. She was a jerky Red. She owned all the trimmings and she was still a Red. What the hell was she hoping for, a government order to share it all with the masses? Yeah. A joint like this would suddenly assume a new owner under a new regime. A fat little general, a ranking secret policeman, somebody. Sure, it’s great to be a Commie . . . as long as you’re top dog. Who the hell was supposed to be fooled by all the crap?”― Mickey Spillane, One Lonely Night
