[first line, voiceover]



Chuck Norstadt:
It was a good dream, my best one. Everything was perfect. My mother was proud of her son's wings. My half-sister, Meg, lost her braces. My other half-sister, Gloria, had realized my intellectual superiority and was quietly respectful to me. My stepfathers were slaves, captured in battle. And there was a WAC by my side, not too bright, not too loud, hugely attractive. It's a good dream: a "John Wayne meets Hugh Hefner" philosophy of life... if you consider Hef a philosopher... or John Wayne. But whatever the dream, there's always a face that I can't see, that I keep missing, out there beyond the edge of the crowd.

[Going over Chuck's essay]



Justin McLeod:
What would you change about the government?



Chuck Norstadt:
Me? Um, lots of things.



Justin McLeod:
Such as?



Chuck Norstadt:
Su-such as...



Justin McLeod:
Such as how the word is spelled, for example.



Chuck Norstadt:
What?



Justin McLeod:
Judging by your essay, looks as if you hope to change the spelling of the word "government," "democracy," and, uh, "Richard Miltown Nixon."



Chuck Norstadt:
So I'm not too good at spelling.
