Then there’s “Big Al,” a Nashville music producer who is convinced that the Russians are coming. He’s built a underground shelter in the woods where he plans to live on 1,000 gallons of water (“I am not going to drink my own urine), 10,000 pounds of wood and his misguided anger.
He’s even written a song about his belief in an imminent nuclear attack, featuring the immortal line: “You may wish you had a gun/ when you can’t call 911.”
Big Al’s rants would generate realistic fears — in 1962.
For now, the paranoia shared by Big Al and Jason mainly provides comic relief. At least until the next storm comes around.
