‘I glanced at an ancient baroque door and asked him about censorship on television. He giggled happily. “Oh it is wonderful! It is the wildest, silliest little game! The censors take out what they think the people think the censors think they should be taking out.’ Chandler Brossard, The Spanish Scene.”
