Notes: Hillary C. born 10/26/47 and moved to Chapaqua 1/6/00…Her husband's welfare and job-creation stats are from whitehouse.gov… Charlene's been to England, Wales, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Israel, Cyprus, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Korea, Canada, Mexico, the Bajamas, Japan (where she lived for two years), the United States and Jamaica. ...Income gap information from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and the Economic Policy Institute…Population figures from the U.S. Census Population Projections Program…Buchanan's suggestion to limit the number of non-white Christians at top colleges made in his 11/28/99 New York Post column…Henry Ford info from 12/27/98 Detroit News…Plastic gun story from Reuters…Online drug info from The Industry Standard and Forrester…The Graduate info from www.homevideos.com; the most-quoted line is 'Are you trying to seduce me, Mrs. Robinson?' …The Butcher, Baker and Candlestick maker were in the Three Men in the Tub poem…Drew Carey's staff tells us he reads the publication cover to cover…Dobbler's speech is as follows: "A career? I've thought about this quite a bit sir and I would have to say considering what's waiting out there for me, I don't want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed or buy anything sold or processed or repair anything sold, bought or processed as a career. I don't want to do that. My father's in the army. He wants me to join, but I can't work for that corporation, so what I've been doing lately is kick-boxing, which is a new sport...as far as career longevity, I don't really know. I can't figure it all out tonight, sir, so I'm just gonna hang with your daughter."
