One night in August (1974), Ted called from his parents’ house in Tacoma. He was crying, and his words came out slowly. He told me that he’d been driving near a shopping center in Tacoma, and had seen the police chase a man down the street. “He was like an animal,” Ted said. “He ran and ran with the police chasing him in their car, and when they caught him, he urinated all over himself.” I wondered what he was trying to tell me, but when I tried to get him to tell me more about it, he changed the subject and started talking about the budget he was working on.“ – The Phantom Prince
