Washington State, beautiful as it is, was underappreciated by our heroes as they drove Jenkin hard to make a return to native soil before the sun went down on my birthday. Isn’t Seattle kind of 1993 anyway?
Speaking of the early 1990s, we did stop for burgers at a diner near Isa‘s home town of Bellingham, and there spotted the kind of sublimely tacky t-shirt Canadians usually only read about. On the front was the ingenious Gulf War slogan “Saddam Hussein = So-Damn Insane,” and on the back was a cartoon showing the Butcher of Baghdad under the gun from a bristling array of star-spangled bombs and missiles, defecating in fear. So now we know where Isa gets all of her genuine class.
