I never heard of Pete Ladd before I pulled this card out of a recent repack.
As for the hair, I stopped wearing my hair like that sometime in the 1970s.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in spring, when everything else begins again, and blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then, just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops."
- Bart Giamatti
