|THIS IS THE VERONICA I PROBABLY HAD IN MIND...WHAT CAN I SAY...I WAS A KID|
CHRISTIAN RIGHT PROBABLY WOULDN'T LIKE HER MUCH EITHER
I was, however, not much into Archie and the gang. I did read them from time to time, but they came from my sister. If forced to choose between Betty or Veronica, well, I liked Veronica's looks and her attitude, but if I remember correctly she was richer than Betty, so I probably should have been all out for Betty. But I wasn't. Betty was just so goody two shoes. Veronica, I always dreamed, had a dark side...and I always liked "bad" girls who took no crap from anyone.
I also have it on good authority that Veronica was a traitor to her class and was involved in some pretty heavy sh*t later on. In fact, she was a prime target at one point of the COINTELPRO program. I could tell you more but I simply do not discuss in detail and on principle that sort of thing.
What the hell am I talking about.
Well, now it seems that the Archie and his peeps are in a heck of trouble with the Christian Right.
It isn't about birth control and abortion, so it must have something to do with gay people.
You got it.
Let's hear a big Hip Hip Hurrah, for my old bud, Billy B. for this analysis and history.
