Chapter 2, page 17: "Everyone played together. Everyone's parents watched out for everyone else's kids. Midland was a place where other people's mothers felt it was not only their right, but also their duty, to lecture you when you did something wrong, just as your own mother did. I'll never forget the time Mike Proctor's mom came running out of her house to yell at me for running out into the street without looking. She got my attention, and I never did it again."

Midland, Texas: Home of Big Mother.

Speaking of going hogwild in the streets, did y'all see that Mondo Fucko was asked yesterday what he misses most about the presidency? He replied: "It's inconvenient to have to stop at some stoplights coming over here—I guess I miss that."

Naturally he would miss most a privilege that even being born on third base could not afford him.

[From George Bush's A Charge to Keep, gifted to me by Deeky, because he hates me. In the US, all people who plan to run for president write a shitty book. (Some are less shitty than others, by which I mean the Democrats' books.) A Charge to Keep was George W. Bush's shitty I-wanna-be-president book, published in 1999. I am blogging one random quote per page every day until I have either made my way through the book or lost it behind a couch.]
