Lol! Like we're support to take the word of a dirty, lousy anti-war hippie? He visited Vietnam like Hanoi Jane Fonda and denounced America. Gimme a freakin break!

Hey, why don't you tell your readers about what happened in 1970: Yarrow was convicted of taking "improper liberties" with a 14-year-old fan and spent three months in prison. He was later granted clemency by fellow leftist President Carter for the incident.

Now, now -- the nice man has some pills for you, after he puts the jacket on you with the arms that go in back with the straps. Be good and go along with it, in 300 or so days we will have a Democrat in the White House, and you will have something new to rant about.
