A Documentary About Clinton Affair Takes Us Back to NH in the ’90s
I binge watch TV shows. I love putting my feet up in front of the boob tube after a long day with a glass of wine. It's the best way for me to relax and listen, I have very few vices, so if TV is it, I think I'm gonna be okay.
It's become a recent problem, however, to find a good show for me to watch after I've finished whatever series has caught my fancy. My latest time-waster is The Clinton Affair on A&E.
I'm not especially political. I have my opinions and of course, I do my civic duty, but to actually follow every single disagreement in our government? No, thank you. I am, however, very interested in the Clinton scandal of the '90's. I am about the same age as Monica Lewinsky, although I think she's a bit younger, and I was, at the time, an employee in a law office. I have felt bad for her since 1997. She was 21 years old and he was the President of the United States. Not a fair contest.
In any case, I watched the first episode last night and I was so surprised to see Bill Clinton bowling at LEDA LANES in Nashua when he was campaigning for his first Presidency. He was bowling on the last lane and I noticed the name on the wall. (Remember? It was a carpeted wall with the big letters that spelled out LEDA LANES. Might still be there, but I haven't gone in years!) The show also showed him at NH restaurants. I think one may have been the Red Arrow in Manchester, but I couldn't be sure.
Everything leads back to New Hampshire.
