Nixon Sucks a Dry Martini

Eagerly awaiting the release of Revenge of the Mekons. The documentary (trailer here) is rumored to include footage from last year's top-notch show (does anyone ever talk of the lower notches?) at the Bell House on the Gowanus, with your correspondent in enthusiastic attendance.  Check out this rather arty video from 1988 of "Ghosts of American Astronauts." George Herbert Walker Bush had just been elected President, Maggie Thatcher was hanging on in the U.K., a young Newt Gingrich was bringing ethics charges against House Speaker Jim Wright, and Willard Mitt Romney was into his third year as CEO of Bain Capital. Well, you get the picture.
