"We Don't Need To Answer these Charges

The people know they're false." This means the charges will stick. And a candidate who won't defend himself won't defend the voters' interests.

The People are looking for a thoughtful word above the battle." I actually once heard a candidate say that. He lost, badly. This means, I don't care if I win or lose. I just want to make a noise.

Things You Would Swear You Saw or Heard, but Didn't

For years I would have sworn I once heard June Tabor sing the ballad 'Kinmont Willie.' I went looking for it and discovered she never recorded it. I've gone through her complete discography, and it's not there. Still in my mind's ear I can hear her distinctive voice singing, "Hae ye nae heard of the fause Salkelde? Hae ye nae heard of the Keen Laird Scroop? For he has ta'en the Kinmont Willie, to Haribee for to hang him up."

Also, I was certain I saw on TV back in the early '80s when heroin was fashionable, an anti-drug ad featuring William S. Burroughs. He is sitting on a table. The camera scans over the old needle tracks on his skin. Then he says, "You keep on shooting heroin, you could end up looking like me, if you're lucky. If you're not, (Camera does jump cut to body lying on gurney. Sheet is pulled away to reveal man dead of overdose) you could end up looking like him."

Camera focuses on Burroughs. He says, "It doesn't matter what you call it, heroin, eukodol, dragon, pantopon, morphine, it's junk. And it doesn't matter how you take it. You can shoot it, eat it, smoke it, snort it, drink it, gum it or shove it up your ass, the result is the same, addiction."


I've done an exhaustive search, and that ad never existed.

Does anybody else have memory bumps like that?

For Any Yalies Out there, Is this True

Yalies sometimes refer to Harvard as 'Codfish College' or 'That Diploma Mill in Cambridge, Mass.'
Is this true?

Thanks

From the Crow's Nest Feb 3, 1980

And the Republicans have Ronald Reagan, who acted like a governor of California for eight years and now wants to act like a president.

From April 1971, MAD Magazine. "The Rats are destroying Disneyland. We've got to make Governor Reagan act! Hollywood couldn't, how can we?"

A Proposed Constitutional Amendment

"Eighteen shall be the age of majority in all matters. Congress shall have the power to enforce this amendment by appropriate legislation."

All matters means all matters. If you're old enough to vote, fight, get married, then you're old enough to drink, get a credit card, sign any legal contract, own property and anything else.
