    “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” was Pantene’s most infamous slogan…and Gwyneth Paltrow’ alleged mantra.

    Beauty has nothing to do with it, the aforementioned shallowness does.

    re: BZ

    hehe. Good one. I’d been forcing myself not to make that joke. It’s just too good not to use here, though.

    Simon,

    Thanks for the heads up. The title is a take on Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book” about how to be a Yippie in the turn of the 70s.

    Abby Hoffman came to our college campus at U of Maryland late 1971 to give a speech. It turned into a very violent riot (errrrr) demonstration of our determination to change something or another. It was never clear exactly what we trying to do but it was good media. Abby liked media attention a lot.
    I was in class when our room was tear gassed by the Maryland State Police Tactical Thugs (errrr) Troopers for no apparent reason. I spent over an hour escape and evading roaming groups of students rioting and cops chasing.

    Scene I’d like to see.

    “Yes officer, I know I’ve had a few too many. but how about giving a fellow trooper a break, huh? Back in the 70’s I used to be on the Maryland State Police Tactical Squad, and….
    Ummm, uhhhh, wh-what are you laughing like THAT for?”

    Ah, if only we all had Millie’s gift for a retort when it is needed. Most of us think of a good response only long after the need for it has passed.

    Nothing quite that exciting but back in ’68 we had the SDS on Campus and because they were there we also had the FBI. So we had fun watching the FBI watching the SDS. It was obvious who was who and nobody was fooling anybody. No harm done and they all moved on to greener political pastuers.

    That would be good.
    I have a further story to it involving the parking lot, my car, desire to leave, two officers upset about not thumping Yippies stuck on parking lot detail, and decided I was the next best thing.
    I got a broken back car window and a souvenir billy club marked Maryland State Police as I fled the scene. The funny part is my father and the head of the Maryland State Troopers were childhood friends. We all got together later and had a big laugh over the whole deal. The two officers were fired on the spot at headquarters after it was shown they lied about the whole deal of being attacked by an angry crowd and their stand to defend the parking lot, located like many about a mile from campus. I was a freshman so we had the far out spots.
