||||||||| Catherwood stomps in at 7:03 AM, dragging Fiirebroiled by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Fiirebroiled: Los Angeles . . . He walks again by night.
Out of the fog . .
.into the smog . .
.relentlessly . . .
ruthlessly . . : . . .
doggadly . . .
toward his weekly meeting with The Unknown.
At 4th and Drucker he turns left.
At Drucker and 4th he turns right.
He crosses MacArthur Park and walks into a great sandstone building.
Groping for the door,
he steps inside,
climbs the thirteen steps to his office . . ..
He walks in!
He’s ready for mystery . . .
he’s ready for excitment . . . .
he’s ready for anything . . . .
he’s . . . . .

Nick Danger, Third Eye!
