jesse helms’ marls (morals)

Thinking back to how NC Senator Jesse Helms pronounced “morals.” It was “marls.”

1980’s, before I could pound out my vapid ditties on some obscure social media, I would write (postal mail) Senator Helms’ office about every little thing that was on my mind.

Example: “Could the Senator not refer to voters as fags and queers?”

Just simple things like that, lol. The office replied to single single letter. Replies were polite though I don’t remember the contents now.
