Here's a scenario from the severely warped corner. He likely would have
started hanging out with more of the black musicians, started smoking a
whole of lot of weed (innocent enough vs those damn narcotics, imo), and eat
peanut butter and banana sandwiches one after the other--gaining all that
weight he had in the early 70s about 10 or 15 years earlier....giving away
Corvairs instead of Caddies.
