I am now back in New York, all rested from my long, long weekend in Garrett County, Maryland.
We went to an antique store while we were there, and I bought a reproduction of a sign from 1942 that reads:
STREET GIRLS BRINGING
IN SAILORS MUST PAY
FOR ROOM IN ADVANCE
As soon as I figure out who it is that I pay in advance, this place is going to be awash in seamen.
