Obama Coopts My Youth

So for what seems like every day between 1982 and 1988, Scott, Ed, Todd, and I, would go to Tastee Sub Shop in Edison. I always got a number 3. Truthfully, I tend to get a number 3 at every sub shop I go to. With oil and vinegar and oregano.

But today Barack Obama is going to Tastee's.

I guess later he'll go to the Forum Theater in Metuchen and catch a second-run movie for a buck-fifty.*

*Actually, the Forum Theater is now back to being a legit theater. It had originally been a vaudeville house, but for all my childhood up through my late '80's it was a movie theater.
