The passage refered to is the following:

seven (?) outlawed words. There was one character in particular,

Belcher (Belker?) -- the short, inarticulate, onion-eating, Jewish

cop who growled as often as he spoke -- who came out with these and

many other relatively euphemistic epithets. Andy Cszypowitz (?) of

Natalie, Nothing in particular -- just like his height, the degree

of his articulateness, his eating habits, his profession, and his

grunting. I was drawing on my mental image of the character to

identify him to readers. His ethnicity stands out as part of his

identity. Why do you ask?
