"Vote as though freedom depends on it." The strangest thing. There
was an old Nixon-Agnew campaign ad tacked on to an early morning Gunsmoke show. I was really half asleep and kept expecting a kicker about some current candidate or a product or something but there it was in its entirety. It was subtle and I hate to admit it but I really liked the catch line. Was I in the twilight zone somewhere?

1. You probably were in TV Land.

They often show "vintage" commercials - "How many licks to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?" - to go along with their "vintage" programming.

3. That's intersting but do they let you know that that is the case when they
show old adverts?

2. Ironic, isn't it,
that this line has come true-but to ensure we retain freedom, we vote Democratic.

4. Yup, I was thinking how appropriate that line would be for the Dems
for this election. Right on the money.
