The man who penned those immortal words has been "promoted" to Washington, where he will have an Eastern Adventure as chief editorial writer for the Scripps Howard News Service. Imagine the insight he'll bring to the 1996 elections. Think what he can do with the latest news of Newt.

Pass the 'shrooms.
