Who said in 1938: "We are not, perhaps, sufficiently aware that Southernism is a particular and highly matured form of Fascism with which America has lived more or less peacefully for seventy-five years." A clue is that it was a woman who was a close associate of people thought to be behind the Kennedy assassination.

That's impressive. She said it in the foreword of the book about her comedy, Kiss the Boys Goodbye, that ran for two hundred and eighty-six performances. The following year, she wrote her openly anti-Nazi play, Margin for Error.
