Quotes:
John was barefoot when he met me at the spiffy new Indianapolis airport, but he was driving his birthday present, a brand-new gray Jaguar. It was a little like being met by L'il Abner and taken to Dogpatch - only L'il Abner wouldn't have been driving a Jag and wouldn't have owned Dogpatch to quite the extend that John Mellencamp seemed to own Seymour.
