1. Respect for Generals: One of the more hilarious episodes from the Joe Pyne Show was the one where Pyne brought on what he described as his hero, General “Chesty” Puller. I am not making this up. The general was completely, entirely, absolutely demented, seemingly unaware of where he was, but ready to bomb Korea and Germany into the Stone Age. As I remember, the General appeared to fall asleep or pass out at one point. They went to break, and, when they came back, he was gone.

    The draft: Dick Gregory regularly talked about how Americans were happy to send their children (back then it was sons) to war, and suggested how different the reaction might be should the selective service come for their pets: “You’re not gonna take Rover! Over my dead body! Maybe we should stop the damn war……”
