Then it gets even weirder: Apparently Ann Landers and Lady Bird Johnson were both there as farmers (campers? inmates??) too, the former to push advice on Fisher, and the latter to keep misremembering one of the most popular sci-fi franchises of our time as Car Wash. Sounds like a party—or a sequel.
