“…look what happened on Wall Street last Sunday. Kusama had four kids there, besides Daniel Barrajanos, the bongo drummer. Linda Meyer and Sarida Fotouhi, two extraordinarily slender and lissome honeys, danced from the Treasury to the Exchange with Ernie Blake and Paul Sanford, a couple of exquisitely sculptured young sorts who fair took the breath from the assembly. Services were just concluding at Trinity Church, the tourists were standing about with cameras agape, confoundment reigned for ten whole minutes.
It took ten minutes for the cops to catch wind of it. Having prudently stationed sentries all around the Exchange area, Kusama and her crew were alerted long before the fuzz approached Wall and Broad Streets, slowly and quietly, like quail hunters.” — DA Latimer
