‘I gotta quote my local supermarket checkout lady.  I was through the grocery store to buy some shampoo and there was no express line, so I was incarcerated in front of a bunch of magazines had Jennifer Aniston and so forth on the front.  She looked at me and said, “My son’s about to be deployed to Iraq, and this magazine tells me I should worry that Jennifer Aniston’s wedding got cancelled? You ever wonder if Americans are worried about all the wrong stuff?”’
