Notes of a Dirty Old Man

Story written circa 1973

It was a small office on the third floor of an old building not too far from skid row. Joe Mason, president of Rollerworld, Inc., sat behind the worn desk which rented with the building and had knife carvings on the top and sides: "Born to die." "Some men buy what other men are hanged for." "Shit soup."..
