Representative Quotes:

page 91:

“Begin to find out where it really is in the world. It isn’t in sin, my friend. It is certainly not lying in an alley some place having the rats eat your ankles to the bone.”

page 114:

“My wife started pointing out how unchristian the shows were. Christian characters were always held up for ridicule as some kind of psychos, hypocrites, or fools. I was trying to ignore her, but after Chico [& the Man] came MASH and its insipid little Catholic priest, whom nobody listens to except the crazy guy who wears dresses.”
