  1. What modern readers may not know, though newspaper subscribers would have at the time, is that the boastful man, in bragging about “knowing how to run a business”, is talking about illegal practices that are allowing him to reap large profits at the expense of the war effort, which makes him not just a crook but a traitor. I see that this does not escape you, since you have tagged this post with “profteering”.This conversation circulated during the war as an urban legend: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,802252,00.htmlI presume that Gray changed the parties from women to men so he could depict a brutal fistfight instead of mere slapping.
