“Meyer Wolsheim? No, he’s a gambler.” Gatsby hesitated, then added coolly:  “He’s the man who fixed the World’s Series back in 1919.” “Fixed the World’s Series?” I repeated. The idea staggered me. I remembered of course that the World’s Series had been fixed in 1919 but if I had thought of it all I would have thought of it as a thing that merely happened, the end of some inevitable chain. It never occurred to me that one man could start to play with the faith of fifty-million people -with the single-mindedness of a burglar blowing a safe.
