Baby’s Head Soft Spot #2 — Irrational Fear of the Red Chinese

Who knows where such an irrational fear starts? Maybe with those cousins who had me convinced that the Red Chinese were gonna cross the Mexican border and take over Texas. Maybe it was the old movie Terror of the Tongs. ‘Course this was mightily contradicted by my second grade “vision” of Jesus walking across our school crosswalk. It was a traditional White Boy Jesus with ivory skin tone and golden hair, although he was wearing some tire-tread sandals and a satin boxing robe emblazoned with the initials, JC. He was here to save us all from the Red Chinese and the Russians! Luckily, I never told anyone about this vision because Jesus never made a real appearance. But then, neither did the Red Chinese.

  1. Stackhat, you slay me. I’m picturing Jesus ordering Chinese food from the Old Peking in Nazareth. Why the hell you aren’t writing short stories and publishing novels continues to baffle me. And no, I am not blowing smoke up your backside. I don’t smoke.
