WELCOME TO THE WORLD,
a world in which gangsters can rule nations and almost rule cities, in which hotels and apartment houses and celebrated restaurants are owned by men who made their money out of brothels, in which a screen star can be the fingerman for a mob, and the nice man down the hall is a boss of the numbers racket; a world where a judge with a cellar full of bootleg liquor can send a man to jail for having a pint in his pocket, where the mayor of your town may have condoned murder as an instrument of moneymaking, where no man can walk down a dark street in safety because law and order are things we talk about but refrain from practising; a world where you may witness a hold-up in broad daylight and see who did it, but you will fade quickly back into the crowd rather than tell anyone, because the hold-up men may have friends with long guns, or the police may not like your testimony, and in any case the shyster for the defense will be allowed to abuse and vilify you in open court, before a jury of selected morons, without any but the most perfunctory interference from a political judge.
It is not a very fragrant world, but it is the world you live in.
Raymond Chandler, The Simple Art of MurderWELCOME TO BRACK, 1947,
a city just like any other. Well.. sort of. Because here, it's not to hard to imagine a murderer lurking around every corner. That smiling face at the bar might be the one taking your hard-earned money while you lie in the filth of a back alley. Here, any dispute can be ended with a burst through a door with gun in hand. But it's not all dank and gloom. Because you can have all the riches in the world, if you know how to play your cards right.
