Pic of the Day: “Is your hotel restricted?” “Well, I’d hardly say it was restricted.” “Then it’s not restricted?” “Would you excuse me a moment, please?” “How do you do, Mr. Green?” “How do you do?” “In answer to your question, may I inquire, are you – that is, do you follow the Hebrew religion yourself, or is it that you just want to make sure?” “I’ve asked a simple question. I’d like a simple answer.” “Well, we do have a very high-class clientele, and, well, naturally–“ ”Then you do restrict your guests to Gentiles?”

“Well, I wouldn’t say that, Mr. Green. In any event, there seems to be some mistake. We don’t have a free room in the entire hotel.

That’s it, isn’t it?” “I never said that.” “If you don’t accept Jews, say so.” “Don’t raise your voice to me, Mr. Green. Speak a little more quietly, please.” “Do you or don’t you?” “Mr. Green, I’m a very busy man. If you want me to phone a cab, or a room at the Brewster, I’ll do so, otherwise– ” “Otherwise what?”
