Crime is based upon need, making money. People sell drugs to make money. But if everybody is cared for, they don’t sell drugs and if there’s no money you can’t sell drugs even if you wanted to. There’d be no such thing as gambling, prostitution, or selling out, or paying off a senator or a governor. There are no senators, there are no governors so you can’t pay them off. If you take away the basis or the condition that generate abhorrent behavior, you don’t have abhorrent behavior.
Being accused of making money by selling sex in Hollywood, home of the casting couch and the gratuitous nude scene, is so rich with irony that it’s a better subject for a comic novel than a column…. On one coast the cops are busting sex workers on Eighth Avenue, dragging them downtown to night court where they pay the fine and go right back to their corner; on another they’re charging Heidi Fleiss with pandering in a town in which the verb is an art form.
Well, I spent six or seven years after high school trying to work myself up. Shipping clerk, salesman, business of one kind or another. And it’s a measly manner of existence. To get on that subway on the hot mornings in summer. To devote your whole life to keeping stock, or making phone calls, or selling or buying.

Even today the borders they’re seeing the physical borders are very different from the political borders. Because all those powers are so connected, and you cannot even see whose interest in what move.
So if waiting is an aggravation, it is at least partly because we do not like being reminded of our limits. We like doing — earning, buying, selling, building, planting, driving, baking — making things happen, whereas waiting is essentially a matter of being — stopping, sitting, listening, looking, breathing, wondering, praying. It can feel pretty helpless to wait for someone or something that is not here yet and that will or will not arrive in its own good time, which is not the same thing as our own good time.
