The Decay of Lying

"Where, if not from the Impressionists, do we get those wonderful brown fogs that come creeping down our streets, blurring the gas-lamps and changing the houses into monstrous shadows? To whom, if not to them and their master, do we owe the lovely silver mists that brood over our river?"
—Oscar Wilde

Roadblock, 1951

Los Angeles Times, 1955
