... Well, then.  I bet Clueless Lad *has* a past, but the Legion will 
have to scan his birth certificate into their online systems if they

Turns out I'm an anally-fixated oedipal paranoid with 
south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
