4. They mean Jews. Did they ask about the other 40 percent?
Because my bet is they're Catholic. Why? Because theatre wasn't respectable. It wasn't where the children of the good, white, Protestant people made a living.

It was where the outcasts went. Irish need not apply. Those used to be the signs put up where there was job hiring.

How did Beverly Hills, that address of addresses get its start? The "good" section of LA, where the rich and important lived, was restricted. Jews weren't allowed to own property there. So they bought land that wasn't restricted.

The upsetting thing, of course, is that the outcasts got so rich. If the WASPs had known, maybe they would have soiled their hands.
