SUBWAY GRATE: What were you like in high school? Who were your friends?

SNYDER: We were called the Twenty-Third Street Whippets. I say were; they still are. I mean, they’re still going strong, relatively.

SUBWAY GRATE: You were in a gang?

SNYDER: I had opinions. You know. I was an opinionated young man. And this gave me a forum.

SUBWAY GRATE: Did you wear a leather jacket? What was gang life like?

SNYDER: I owned a leather jacket. I kept it in the closet, in its box, you know: had the crinkly tissue in it, the whole nine yards.
