Still, I blame my parents. They named me after my dad's best friend, Richard, who died in Vietnam right before I was born. To name any child "Richard Burton" in 1967 was not only horribly cruel, but incredibly stupid: guess who's choosing their nursing home?
In truth, I blame it on Lyndon Johnson. If it weren't for him, my father's friend wouldn't have been there to be shot by the VC in the first place.
As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.
