I Love Having The Last Word

And I got it. I hasten to add that as many baby boomers know, it’s a paraphrase of a hippie-maxim from the 1970s (and for all I know, there’s some other version that’s even older):

Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope.

I first heard it c. 1974 (give or take a year or two) while sitting in an apartment in Iowa City smoking a joint. No surprise, under those circumstances, it struck me as the most profound thing anyone had ever said.
