Today in History

3/19/83

Let me tell you a true story about a boy we’ll call Charlie. He was only 14 and he was burned out on marijuana… One day, when his little sister wouldn’t steal some money for him to go buy some more drugs, he brutally beat her. The real truth is that there’s no such thing as soft drugs or hard drugs. All drugs are dumb… Don’t end up like Charlie.

–Nancy Reagan guest-staring as herself on Diff’rent Strokes

And so it began. Nancy moves from laughable, vapid, and shallow vainglorious airhead to drug crusader and becomes rehabilitated from her ball gown and china dinner service debacles, and the US moves into first place for having a greater percentae of citizens behind bars than any country on earth.

    Not only the greatest percentage of our population incarcerated, but the greatest absolute number of prisoners, more even than China — despite the fact that China’s population dwarfs ours, and despite the China’s brutal reputation.

    USA! USA! USA!

    Because, boys and girls, when B follows A, A caused B.

    This reality has been driven home to us by the rash of earthquakes following the Obama administration’s decision to stop defending the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.

    Its very special

    Don’t end up like Ronnie, either, because if you’re not careful, you knock up someone like Nancy.

    a little off topic… but my favorite quote about her;
    when some Hollywood old-timer was asked how Nancy ever managed to break in to the biz despite obvious lack of talent, beauty, charisma, etc.
    “Nancy Davis?, she could suck the chrome off a tailpipe!”

      NYCedges –

      That is not off topic at all.

      When I was in college and Nancy would appear on the teevee machine, someone would invariably yell, “You suck” and someone else would yell back, “…but does she have time?”

      Her talent was really well-known in Santa Barbara.

    You know, Nancy never was much of a looker, but her skin doesn’t look bad there (see posting below).

  11. Well, Ten, for those who thought she had no talent whatsoever, they stand corrected. Yeah, I recall hearing that too, and then it resolved my confusion about how the hell she got to be in the movies.
