In the Time that Gerald R. Ford was president I went to the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor with some other rabblerousers to protest his presidency and what it stood for – more military actions and less aid for ailing cities. I remember we shouted him down at one point and in a moment of recognition at age 20, Ford turned to our unruly bunch and addressed us personally. I remember afterward walking home and meeting some pre-Goth girls who invited me into their home to drink rum and we talked forever about Jim Morrison and his significance and how maybe he hadn’t died, had faked his death to free himself from the suffocating clutches of fandemonium. “Nobody ever saw his body and there was no autopsy.” They may have even claimed to have channeled the spirit of Jim. It may have been creepier than I let on at the time. To say the least, it was a very strange night as I was so … generally unaware of me in my surroundings; could not readily interpret body language and insinuations, dropped lines as they both wanted – I only realized later! – to get naked with me and what I said to this day baffles me beyond regret. “I love Jim Morrison and thanks for the rum, but I have to go home now to feed my cat.” Two perplexed pale-skinned alternative gals all in black, black lipstick even, ready to shed their shredded tops, ready to lock the door, ready to step out of their leopard-pattern panties, ready… and I had to go home and feed the cat! I regretted it every time I walked by there and I walked past there a lot but never saw those 2 girls ever again and began to wonder if I had not hallucinated the entire thing.
