    Is it possible that there is anyone in the world who dislikes John Waters Who by his very nature is America s favorite slightly wacko uncle Democrat, Republican and basic citizen adore this man, because he is so decent Also who wouldn t want to be John Waters for a minute or two In fact the beauty of his books Role Models, Crackpot, Shock Value, and now Carsick is that we as readers can share the same breathing space while reading his words Often we don t want the book to be over, Is it possible that there is anyone in the world who dislikes John Waters Who by his very nature is America s favorite slightly wacko uncle Democrat, Republican and basic citizen adore this man, because he is so decent Also who wouldn t want to be John Waters for a minute or two ...
