The older I get - the better I was

Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.
When I was a little kid Pete Rose was the King of Cincinnati. There was a family two houses down whose last name was Rose. Every time a strange car parked in their driveway, I used to wait to see if Pete Rose was there. Yeah, I was a dumb little kid who didn't know the last name Rose is not that uncommon. I wasted a lot of hours waiting for Charlie Hustle to come out.
