Transcript I stuff the ten dollar bills into his jacket pocket. As I drive, he protests. "I don't get it. You want me, I want you, but you kick me out." "A very wise man dais: 'Man does not live by bread alone." "Meaning what?" "Unless there is pleasureable participation of mind and spirit physical sensations aren't worth the effort." Two and one half days pass; the phone rings: "I've got to find out about this love business. Confucius says 'Chow Mein becomes great feast for a hungry man'." "So, you think chow mein and love are synonymous?" "Must be . . . what else? . . . some of the best of everything mixed together intoagreatfeast?" What's to say? "So, come pick me up after work tonight. I'll skip school tomorrow . . . and, we'll try out the love bit." "I'm not available until Tuesday . . . and, skipping school might cost you too much." "Damn you!" (These youngsters know everything and if I weren't so damned bull- headed I'd learn how Chow Mein is made.) W.E.B., 1/17/73 Mad Capping and Night Capping in Dallas June in Big D has been a month of celebrations -- birthdays etc. Sabra Garth of Ronsue's is one year older along with Sal Al Marie -- Carla you's never know it the way those girls carry on and keep their legs in the air!! Miss Chelsey also had one (birthday that is) and Big Mable -- and that ain't all Big Mable had!! Girl -- what did you try to get that extra large hooter from Louisiana to do to your body? I'm a dummy, but I heard your legs almost never touched down on terra firma. Is that how you got rid of all your fleas??? Still with Big Mable -- she did a dress up bit at Ronsue's on a recent Sunday night show -- and that was a hoot! It's hard to fit a big woman like Mable, but her dressmaker shopped for days at Dallas Tent and Awning and finally found enough material -- she was georgeous! That was one of the best shows I've seen for .some long time, but what else can be expected from Ronsue's. It's time again for Ronsue's annual benefit for underprivileged children and that should bring a large tournout. Last year they sent 125 children to camp -- this year they will be working with crippled children. It makes me very proud to be a part of a community that can care about their fellow man. Mother has visited most of the Gay Bar scene this month -- except for the few places that practice public exhibitions -- on pool tables and in T-rooms etc. If mother ever gets another husband, she'll find a more comfortable place than a pool table to do her number!!! The Speakeasy --at new location 5462 Denton Drive cutoff is a beautiful bar, and I understand they're getting tremendous crowds. Go by and say Hi to Buddy and see how you like the place. The Glory Hole is the competition a couple of doors away -- good luck to both clubs. The Sundance Kid -- a very nice pleasant little Bar -- near the Ranch at 4117 Maple. Since I'm not a beer drinking woman, I'll have to take a little bottle of Old Charter out some night and have a few! Mother never has a couple-- The Big Mable Family Album is coming up this Saturday at the Villa Fontana -- all live, it should bring about a fun filled evening - - Madame Fertilizer will be making a guest appearance -- she is also MC for Ronsue's Benefit show. You can't keep that girl out of a dress. To Miss Palmer, the Fina ph- last -- I know you've got a new car, a new pinky ring etc., but you know Mother and Miss Exxon are not married girls, and honey, when they're on Old Charter -- they're a real live hazzard, especially for a married lady! The Entree Nuit sponsored a hot pants contest over the 4th and again Miss Gerry of the Villa was in the running. Honey, it must be embarrassing to lose out to a puss, and they weren't even showing a box! Heard it was a hoot! Well don't feel too bad dear -- Mother lost out at Ronsue's pool tournament to Good ole Carol -- and that was for the consolation prize. It wasn't too surprising since Mother only plays pool about twice a year and that is at Ronsue's pool tournaments. The Bayou Landing had their outing with fried chicken and there was a lot of burned bodies -- from the heat that is -- Heard J. Carroll and Miss Kaufman made the scene, but Miss Kended up almost drauerless and moneyless at the gay Ramrod -- just tell Mother how you got home honey. I already know your condition. The Lady of the Lake made a flying trip to LA over the holiday, but has returned -- guess we'll have to get together for a few sips, and you can tell all. I want my Care Package from Good Ole George (the bartender at the David in LA) My God, they say, who could forget her! Bertina, I know you have a weight problem, but it ain't where you told me it was. I have a diet plan, but it doesn't have triple servings of veg soup and corn- bread! In closing I would like to voice all our concern over the fire in New Orleans. Our hearts went out to the kids who lost their lives and those who had to witness such Ann Landers: A Homosexual's Suicide (C, 1973, Field Enterprises Inc.) Dear Ann Landers: I've got to tell someone before ^explode. Three weeks ago my brother killed himself. He was^/h$n|i- some, intelligent, considerate and a success at whatever»flh&. attempted. Jim was two years older than me and I enjoysiJ^fi. status of -having the most popular and most attractive bntther-iir town. In spite of the attention he received he didn't 4ate."nwch and did not marry. «■■>■"«" Jim put himself through college and spent nearly four-year* in the Air Force. He did a tour of duty in Vietnam and ThaHatffl.' When he separated from the Service six months ago he seemed- moody and preoccupied. I couldn't reach him, although I tried-oft several occasions. The day he took his life he mailed a letter to our parents—a very long letter, in which he revealed that he was a homosexual, depressed, unhappy and saw no reason to go on living. He said he had read dozens of books on the subject, seen a psychiatrist for an explanation of his homosexuality, and ended up blaming the stormy marriage of my parents. After 30 years Mom and Dad are still battling. I can rtirwjn- ber the black eyes and the beatings my mother took when we were children. I recall vividly hiding with Jim, under the bed, and how once, when Jim tried to protect Mom, he got a beating, himself. Now with Jim's suicide and this letter, Mon? is on the verg« of a nervous breakdown and Dad is just numl>, I don't understand any of this. I was very close to my brofher, yet I never had the faintest notion that he was fighting .this battle. What causes homosexuality? Help me, please. I, like Mom, am at the —Breaking Point Dear B.P.: The next letter contains as good an explanation as any I have ever seen. BLOOD, MOANS: CHARITY SCENE Med Teams Race Time Amid Confusion a horror. I know that many prayers were said and that all the gay churches have tried to do something to help these people through their suffering. There it is. Tonight I start on a new project - - Mother is going to open a boarding house! (Mother - "Is this commercial paid for?) Won't that be a hoot -- of course they've come up with a few names to put up in RED neon lights -- like Mother's Whore House etc., well, we'll talk to you next month. Mother of Dallas P.S. Ronsue's benefit ran $500 -- ain't that just great? By CLANCY DUBOS A nurse's aide mopped blood off the floor while an intern drew more from the arm of a scorched patient. Doctors in tennis shoes cut dead skin off the chest of a middle-aged man who moaned steadily while he was rocking on his side. ./ More ambulances -arriving with n_i o r e stretchers bearing more cut and burned victims—that was the scene at the Accident Emergen£y"room of Charity Hospital Veil into Sunday night. A fire flashed through a building housing three French Quarter bars several hours earlier on the corner of Iberville and Chartres Sts. Outside in the visiting area friends and families waited, with questions, prayers and scattered bits of information.
