Example text

When he took to the airwaves and declared Watergate conspirator John Mitchell “Guilty! Guilty! ” before he’d even been indicted, the manic grin he wore for the occasion told the tale; he was looking for blowback, just as surely as Rush Limbaugh does when he calls Obama a racist. In subsequent years, Mark shed some of the merry prankster perversity, but he still lives to mix it up. That he would be allowed to do so at staid NPR pushes credulity, but without its moderating culture, Mark might well have evolved into just another shock jock.

D. Mark Slackmeyer Zonker Harris Acknowledgments A few words about what this collection is not. It’s not about Watergate, gas lines, cardigans, Reaganomics, a thousand points of light, Monica, New Orleans, or even Dubya. None of that. Admit it, you’re relieved. You’ve either forgotten much of the historical detritus referenced in Doonesbury through the years, or, even more understandable, you’d like to.

The underlying vulnerability had been obvious from the start—his fellow players, after all, had had some success getting into his head. Indeed, one teammate in particular, Zonker, had no other on-field ambition. D. moved out into life with a protective shell, shielded from doubt or insight, impervious to slight, firmly resistant to the disturbing new world of personal growth and male hugs.
