I wonder...just what the hell did Arbus say to these kids?

(by the way, while I appreciate the sentiment in the earlier comment, I had to delete it. It was linked to a spam blog and we're not going to countenance that stuff here. Again, thanks for the kind words. Keep on blogging we shall)

Did Mailer say that before or after Arbus took this photo?
