LAST CALL: Bill's games started well before he hit DC

Bill Clinton has certainly relaxed his PR defenses since leaving

office. One of our favorite results of this phenomenon is a small

chapter Clinton contributed to a recently published book entitled The

Games We Played, edited by Ogilvy PR's very own Steven Cohen, an SVP in

the Washington, DC office.

The Boy from Hope's somewhat desultory tale (he occasionally wanders off

the subject to wax philosophic about a BBQ joint called Stubby's)

recounts the games he would play with neighborhood friends when he was a

child. Most were an odd variation of stickball, adjusted to accommodate

the number of players on hand. However, he admits that some games they

invented were "not so nice."

"We would wait for the cars to go by and try and hit the hubcaps with

the acorns ... because it made the loudest, most delicious sound."

It's not quite draft dodging, but how come Ken Starr let this one go?
