Call-Me-Jack snarfed Pearl Harbor duck. It was Peking duck dolled up with pineapple rings.

“I like the kid. Thad told me he dusted those shines with aplomb.”

“He did, sir. He’s a fearsome young man, and I hope we won’t lose him to the draft. He’d put in his papers for the Marine Corps, but I think our friend Fletch can get him declared ‘Police-essential.’ “
