  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.
