"It was the scene in the new King Kong where Kong is trying to peel off the diaphanous white garments of Jessica Lange high atop the Empire State Building. Tomaj had a view of the building from his living room window, and Sabina kept turning her head back and forth from the tv to the window as if to confirm that the real Empire State Building was there.

'I love this movie,' Sabina said, feeling drunker than she technically ought to.

'Yes,' said Tomaj in a bored tone. 'It's one of the more amusing texts about the racial fears of the white man. But the old version is better. If they were going to make a new version, they could have done so much more.'

Jessica Lange shrieked and whimpered. A scandalous hint of breast appeared under Kong's thumb.

'I would rewrite this movie if I could,' she declared.

'Wouldn't we all.' " [More, pg. 119-120.]

I want to tell the story of what happened here and what's going to happen in the future, and Carl, believe me, I'm going to do it.
