The people at Hunting Creek, she told her friend Marjorie Chinnock—her only friend in Louisville at the time—were just a bunch of snobs. Delores had no sense for decorating, and her new house was an incongruous mingling of elegance and gaudiness—expensive Persian carpets were offset by sturdy and plebian furniture that sometimes had been picked up at auction sales or on other bargain hunts; sterling silver serving sets clashed with art from cheap department stores. Delores admired the beautiful and tastefully decorated white-columned brick home of her neighbors, Howard and Katy Cable, and often remarked to Katy how much she wished her own house could look the same.
Two copies of the Courier-Journal came to the house because Delores refused to touch a newspaper that her husband had handled.

Butch Rice, the station’s twenty-two-year-old assistant manager, a thin man with a mustache, always looked forward to Delores’s visits—“She was like a mother to me,” he said—and he hurried out to wait on her.
