Question: Just what in God's name were you like as a 13-year-old boy in Peoria?

Sam Kinison: The only thing I remember is ditching school and sneaking off to the movies to catch The Graduate, Bonnie and Clyde, and The Wild Bunch. I was a runaway at 15 and took my first job as a busboy at the Peoria Ramada Inn. Later I became a tree planter for $10 a day."

Sam Kinison (1953-1992) Outrageous stand-up comedian and movie actor.
