‘What will you do now?’ asked Rock.
Rogers shrugged, ‘Head further south, try again.’
‘Still think it’ll work, huh?’

‘Sure, for certain things, maybe they don’t want to be reminded about everything.’
‘It was a simpler time, folks like that, ‘specially these days.’
‘Goin’ to stick to the strict rules?’
‘Sure. No blacks, homosexuals or commies. And no cussin’.’
‘Well, I’ll be seeing you, I guess.’
‘You ain’t comin’?’
‘I think it’s time I moved on. Maybe the rest of the world should too.’
