There were secrets told    near Zaftig's Deli          in Coolidge Corner, bigger secrets than the          kids now tell in the   playground next                   door, whispering lips to cupped ear, "Tell        me. Tell me. I won't tell!", exploding into               giggles here once       the assassination of           Hitler plotted,   doom of Nazi nightmare      planned, here spies   came out of Brookline's          cold, hushed voices, hot knishes,        side-by-side, oh   victory was           delicious. At the headquarters of U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence, WWII Brookline, Mass. May 17, 2004
