D:        What?

J:          Do you have any allegorical significance?

D:        No, I’m a cipher.

J:          Sorry to hear it.

D:        The pay’s good and I’m going to write a posthumous memoir.

J:          Will it sell?

D:        Richard’s BIG in purgatory.

J:          So the Catholics are right?

D:        No— in heaven that’s what they call New Jersey
