A Cosmopolitan

"I've seen....
Kentuckians who hated whiskey,
Virginians who weren't descended from Pocahontas,
Mexicans who didn't wear velvet trousers with silver dollars sewed along the seams,
Funny Englishmen,
Spendthrift Yankees,
Cold-blooded Southerners,
Narrow- minded Westerners and
New Yorkers who were too busy to stop for an hour on the street to watch a one-armed grocer's clerk do up cranberries in paper bags."

I invoke your consideration of the scene -
