Ha'satan in New York Scene 1 (Late August, 1950. Two young men are sitting on a bench in Central Park. Early morning, sun is rising). Tim: I know this is a little random, but moments like these… I just wonder. You see these people running around, here and there… always in a hurry. They come to work each day to make money, but for what; do the same thing the next day? Car, food, rent… that’s all they can afford. They work in order to keep working. It’s a circle, with no beginning and no end. What’s the point? I can’t just go with the flow. I want my life to mean something. I want to be remembered, whatever it costs. They followed the rules their entire lives and see where it got them? Nowhere. They are nobodies. Just like ants, they march back and forth mindlessly. I will be different. I will be remembered. (Looks at his friend Richard for a reply). Tim: So what do you think, Rich? Richard: I think you need a girlfriend. Scene 2

(Same day, Roy Cohn is sitting at his desk, talking on the phone. The room consists of a red carpet, large wooden desk, many diplomas hanging on the wall and the focal point is a large painting behind him of a small ship in the middle of a storm). Roy: Will do, Mrs. Brown… No problem… You’re very welcome. Take care now. (Hangs up phone). Roy: Give me a fuckin’ break. (Russell enters carrying a large binder full of paperwork). Russell: Good morning Roy. How’s everything goi… Roy: What do you want? Russell: (Drops binder on Roy’s desk. Opens the cover and shows papers). It’s your lucky day. I got a case here that’s sure to put your name in the history books. You’re dealing with a treason case. (Looks through papers) Ethel Rosenberg… charged with collaborating with the Soviet Union. Roy: Let me see. (Grabs the sheet) I can’t believe this shit. (Continues to read on, takes deep breath) Russell, get me this case. Russell: I’ll see what I can… Roy: Noo… Russell: I’ll get you the case.

Roy: That’s more like it. This fuckin’ commi lover is going to be finished by the time I’m through with her. Take my calls, darling. I have to get some fresh air. (Roy leaves the room. Russell looks through the binder, picks up the phone and dials). Scene 3 (Later that week. Empty room with white walls; there is a single table in the middle. Ethel Rosenberg is sitting, talking to her lawyer. She is still wearing handcuffs). Ethel: I can’t believe David would do this to me. My brother, my flesh and bones… What’s going to become of me? Is there anything I can do? What will people think? Emanuel: Settle down, Ethel. I know this is hard for you… Ethel: I just got my passport done. What if I just ran away to Mexico? I’d stay out of trouble. No one would ever know… Emanuel: (Sternly) Mrs. Rosenberg! This is a very serious offense and though little, the evidence against you is undeniable. As your legal advisor, I would suggest that you work with me and tell me everything that happened. It’s the only thing we can do.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
