Re: The Route 66 is a good example.
Reid,  
 
Ooooooooooccccccccccccccccchhhhhhhhhhhh! You Democrats are killing me here! What's with bashing my hero? Ronnie was a great President. That was back in the good old days when sleeping with the President meant going to a cabinet meeting, not… well, you know? You know?  
 
All kidding aside, I think he may have looked like a nincompoop, but he wasn't. The fall of the Soviet Union was a direct result of his decisions and I don't think it was an accident. I've spent most of my life in the defense industry. The Fall was an unmitigated disaster.  
 
One day a few years ago I was talking politics with a bunch of govies in suits in Washington, D.C. The topic of discussion was Russian politics. I told him I was pulling for that guy, what's-his-name? Zhirnovskiy? the ultra-nationalist? I mean we don't have anybody to hate anymore. I said, "What we need is a good war to get things back on track."  
 
It would have been less offensive had I farted! They near choked on their cocktails. So out of spite I kept a straight face and never told them I was kidding. I never got invited back!  
 
Cheers,  
 
Steve Slick
