    US Army Military Academy Preparatory School, Ft. Belvior, Va., the back door into West Point for enlisted personnel without influential connections. What a party ... not. Spent a couple weeks with the Cadets, Veet-nam was over, over there so I quit and went to Italy to teach skiing while not shooting nukes at the Russkies, who were far too drunk to care. Very strange place up there on the Hudson, and what I did when there cannot be spoken. I applaud the soldier's courage in speaking out and getting out, didn't like the place much myself.

    Just getting a handle on the knobs and dials.... Hey, don't touch that!
