Billy remembered the night he played games with Whiteman at the craps table in Saratoga.
He was dealing at Riley's Lake House, youngest dealer in town that season, 1931, and of course,
of course he knew who Whiteman was when the big boy rolled the dice and lost the last of his wad.
"Let's have five hundred in chips, sonny, and an IOU," Whiteman said.
"Who the hell are you? I don't know you," Billy said. Sonny me, you son of a bitch.
"I'm Paul Whiteman."
"Ohhhhh yeah, Whiteman. You're the guy's got that hillbilly band playing over at Piping Rock.
You don't mean nothing to me, bud. Go see the manager if you want chips."
The Manager fired Billy twenty minutes later. Orders from above.
