There's a book for someone to write: go back and figure out where/when the American Dream turned into the American Fantasy. Do a post-mortem on the American Dream. I like the sound of that, but I'm not really that pesimistic, I just think it's cool to be cynical. It's a hell of a lot easier than being productive, I'll tell you that. And we must all be something, easy or otherwise. Try not to be anything bumpy or painful, though, okay?
[In Watchmen, as the world is falling apart with riots in the streets and such, when asked what happened to the American Dream, the Comedian responds, "What do you mean what happened to it? IT CAME TRUE ! ! ! (hysterical laughter)]
