A note from one of our British correspondents, Nick Helweg-Larsen:
I was wondering if you would do a post which would lead to discussion etc. on RAWs thoughts on Ralph Nader.
I get the impression he didn't like him.
eg. in Reality is What You Can Get Away With:
Just tell us about the Space Brothers, please.
Well, they look like dwarfs, and they’re all Ralph Nader fans. They kept talking about wearing your seat belt when you drive and eating wholesome foods and never farting in church.
and from a quick Google:
RAW says, "Every time I have to attach a seat belt I say 'God damn Ralph Nader' ..."
Do you think it was uncomfortable to him with his polio, or he was just grumbling, wanted the choice of seat belt/no seatbelt etc.?
My guess would be the latter -- I figure RAW didn't like being told what to do -- but what do the rest of you think?
