Reminds me of the time I was in Chicago several years ago, and saw the local constabulary giving some guy a “wooden shampoo.” I must have looked a little shocked because one of the cops asked me if I wanted any. He didn’t have to ask twice....
awww, you missed the good ones at the Dem Convention in 67.
Of course they were beating the hippies, so, it was cool, and my dad was laughing his ass off.
That’s when Dems were more conservative than R’s, and Old Man Daley would have nothing to do with hippies in Grant Park messing with his convention.
Oh, and they used to hollow their night sticks and fill them with lead, just for the sake of it.
