The Theory of Chaos

I'm detecting a pattern here...

Remember this post?

Well here we are: another day, another O. Henry short story, another shy protagonist offering us dire warnings about the threat of blade-wielding wops:

I guess already that you been stuck in the ribs with a knife. I have many times told you those Dagoes would do you up."

So says Ikey Schoenstein, soft-spoken main character of "
The Love-Philtre of Ikey".

O. Henry, the Spike Lee of his day.
