An old man, after testifying that he “personally” had seen a swimming rattlesnake, in the Delta-Mendota Canal, urged “moderation” on the Helen Gurley Brown question. “We shouldn’t get on the beeper to call things pornographic before we’ve read them,” he complained, pronouncing it porn-ee-o-graphic. “I say, get the book. Give it a chance.”
The original provocateur called back to agree that she would get the book. “And then I’ll burn it,” she added.
“Book burner, eh?” laughed the disc jockey good-naturedly.
“I wish they still burned witches,” she hissed.
