“I see absolutely everything.”

“I’ve been keeping tabs on this city council room since ninety-two – that’s eighteen hundred and ninety-two. I’ve seen it all. They say walls got ears. Well they got eyes too.

Never saw ’em again).

“Back fifteen years ago Councilman Jones was doing some racketeering in here. As if that wasn’t bad enough, I watched him do the mayor’s wife on that there conference table. I was gonna stay mum, but then he put out bids for tearing out all this Bird Maple panel, and going with dry wall.
