Look under your bed when you get home from the movie and you will find there (pardon yourself the fuzz bunnies) a Commie-Terrorist. If you look closely, that personage resembles the Bolshevists of The Thirties, who slunk among the subversive union organizers.

If you make it a practice to regularly look under your bed (forgive yourself the fuzzy-wuzzies) you will find such disparate characters as Fabian Socialists, Technocrats, Trotskyites, Highlander Folk School teachers, and long-haired Hippies. There may come a time when, in our uncertain future, you look under the bed and see a tatterdemalion--it is a mirror, showing you.
