The Lists #34 by John King

What I Believe

  • Cheese grits are more life-affirming than any other earthly experience.
  • Porn needs more cardigan sweaters.
  • People cannot save a democracy.
  • AC/DC’s ballads are totally underrated.
  • WD-40 should not be used as a sexual lubricant except by the most adventurous of lovers.
  • Porn cannot save democracy.
  • Leon Redbone needs to make an album with Grace Jones. That might save democracy.
