Big Bertha

Big Bertha
Circa 1940, on the streets of Rochester New York, Bertha does her work.
"I don't make hell for nobody. I'm only the instrument of a laughing providence. Sometimes I don't like it myself, but I couldn't help it if I was born smart."

1st Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden.
"From here to Eternity"

Paul Valery

"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

"When a young man, I read somewhere the following: God the Almighty said, 'All that is too complex is unnecessary, and it is simple that is needed',"

Mikhail Kalashnikov
"Here lies the bravest soldier I've seen since my mirror got grease on it."

Hard Head.. What?

I know that this doesn't answer Louis Jordan's question.
It just speaks to the same issue - although four years later - 1958.
And from the other perspective.
Sweet Wanda Jackson is still with us. Seventy two.
If I was as cool, when I was four, as I think I could pull off today - and if I was geographically anywhere in the universe closer than here. Assuming, that Wanda would date a four-year-old, I would have been the Stage-Door-Johnny.
