    ADLER: IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO KNOW THAT IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR I WAS A VOLUNTEER ENTERTAINER, IN KOREA, EVEN, I WENT THERE TO PLAY, BUT NO AMOUNT OF MONEY, PRESTIGE, STATUS OR WHATEVER COULD GET ME TO PLAY IN VIETNAM. THIS IS PERHAPS A TRAITOROUS REMARK TO MAKE, MY BEING AN AMERICAN CITIZEN, BUT I WOULDN'T. AND THEN SUDDENLY HERE COMES THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE -- I DON'T THINK HE'D PLAY IN VIETNAM EITHER.
