Mullets did come at a price: illegal arms sales to Iran, funding through drugs 
of the dirty Contra war in Nicaragua, invasion of Granada, destruction of the 
right to organize, the invasion of Panama, assassination of Archbishop Romero 
in El Salvador, the devastating Iran-Iraq War, gassing of Kurds, deregulation,  
etc. 

A great time was had by all!
