Not too likely, no.
And he had already sent in his absentee ballot, because he had an elk hunt planned for the 2 weeks surrounding Election Day.
So he got to be like a Chicago voter, except I'm sure he didn't vote for Sleep, Creepy Joe !

final count, 72 K plus some open boxes (several of those, he experimented a LOT)

It's amazing how the whole MeToo zeitgeist just went silent when Joe Biden became the Dem front runner and that story about him pinning an intern against the wall and sticking his hand down her pants came out.
Now, one of his kids is talking about the inappropriate showers she took with him as a kid. :alex: It's a whole different concept of being successful when you see a guy like this in contention to be the leader of the free world.

Biden makes Slick Willie look like a Boy Scout ! But he don't remember any of it.

1960's radicals became college professors (what do you DO with a humanaties degree....teach someone else the same useless crap !)
"I've got a Liberal Arts degree, would you like your fries Supersized ?"
I was out of college by '72, so they were not plentiful during my schooling, my Sociology prof was USAAF (!) ret'd. flew in WWII & Korea (Mustang, both theaters). Lt.Col.

Many of my college profs were ex military, highest ranking was a 2* General, lots of Col's. & Majors. And from ALL branches (only 1 Marine!) tough grading SOB he was.
So I didn't get exposed to many whackos !

I floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee. Undergrad degrees were in Psychology and Business. The psych professors were all likable and well grounded, but the graffiti in the bathroom was hilarious.
The business education was pretty cut and dried. I just never figured out what the psych dept. kids thought they were going to do for a living. To go that route, I would have wanted to be Bob Newhart, not a social worker.

True that !
Too bad in his later years, he started attacking the "uptight businessmen in suits" that were his audience when he first was starting :( because back then, they were stoners, just like he was !

He was PERFECT in "Cars".
FWIW..."The King" & Mrs. King were Richard & Linda Petty (before her untimely passing from cancer) They were married 50+ years !
Can't forget P.L.Neuman as Doc Hudson either. Another racer voicing a racecar...priceless !

Cadillac Ranch, isn't it ?
Yeah, a LOT of the stuff Pixar is doing is adult oriented. Just like watching Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons now, a lot more shows up than it did when I was 10 years old ! And it's even funnier NOW.

Yes, it's the Cadillac Ranch.
The one I often wondered about was the Cozy Cone Motel. I'm not sure what that is a parody of. I am assuming that there were a lot of tacky theme motels. I remember going to the L.A. area in the early sixties and seeing a place that sold oranges and juice and the like. The building looked like a giant orange, right down to the shape and texturing.

Probably something that was located on Rt. 66, there had to have been hundreds of them.
I think a LOT of the stuff in "Cars" came from Rt. 66 really.
One that I recall (thank you Johnny Carson!) from Cali was "Orange Julius" they had an orange drink that was fantastic. The 1st one in the Midwest was in "Lakehurst Mall" in Waukegan IL, and they were also one of the last places to close when that mall shut down. I've no idea what they used along with the orange juice, but they were great. If I was anywhere near the mall, I'd swing in, just to get one or two. One time I made a planned run, and had a cooler with me, and bought a dozen of them, home we went & into the freezer so I had a 5 day supply if I didn't pig out.
Don't know if the chain is even in business anymore:dunno:but I'd sure like to have some more of them.......someday.
