No thanks. I'll just raise my cold glass of white milk and toast the picture
of President Eisenhower on the wall with Bob Emery as "Hail to the Chief"
plays. ["Big Brother" flashback]

BTW, my sister tried out for the original "Community Auditions" in the early
'70s, singing some Joni Mitchell or Judy Collins song while strumming a
guitar. She didn't make it, but we got to see a taping session of the show.
I remember being surprised at how the audience always had to be prompted to
clap before and after each break -- it shattered my image of Dave Maynard as
a media idol whose mere appearance could draw spontaneous, wild applause.
