In 1996, we didn't have Newt Gingrich setting fire to a pile of flowers and bunnies with a flamethrower in one hand and a USA billy-club in the other, riding nude & side-saddle on a black-eyed harp seal. We had plaid shirts, and we liked them. I remember stealing nine bucks in nickels and dimes from my friend's bank, just so I could walk to the packy and buy a six pack of Guinness. I drank it down to the last drop and wondered what kind of world I'd live in someday without that shirt on my back. I wondered incorrectly.
