      • All I know about that, not being widely traveled, is that there are cocktails at 9….. and the camel goes off duty at midnight, so one might get stranded in the oasis with lots and lots of strange men…. Truman (and Harper theoretically) knew ALL about that it seems. (Serious note: I’ve heard vague rumors that “Dill” from To Kill A Mockingbird’ was inspired by ol’ Truman. I always pictured Dill as more Dennis the Menace than Alien Creature From A Really Hot, Dusty and Dried out oasis who loves wearing towels atop his head…)
