Billie speaks to us again. In this chapter we get to hear the envelope pushing, perfectionist at his best. He uses quotes from his favorite author to paint the picture of this disheartened view of American life.
“I understand very well what you are talking about, I know where you are coming from... Since you are in the situation, you have to attack it, I don’t know how to tell you to attack it. I’m with you I will do anything...you understand what I mean...when I say we hold the trump, I know that we know more about more about our situation and more about them, than they know about their situation or about us.”
