Within Banson's autobiographical book is a single short chapter regarding politicians of the early 1970s co-opted by their sex acts. In another book, a different book, the chapter's subject matter may have been a salacious selling point that the book's marketing agent could fixate on if small labor-of-love print-on-demand titles had marketing agents. However, in Banson's book, the chapter is not nearly as compelling or as sexually charged as many other chapters in the book. The incident described is, in fact, nearly a break in the book's action and written in such a way that it reminds me of how earlier in the book Banson described the trade taking place in the open-air market where he first came to the attention of the local mafia.
