As a native son of Illinois, I am honor-bound to correct the record on this

Of course I'll always be a tourist, though I've lived here 20 years. The
children on our cul-de-sac are too yuppified to play king of the hill.
Instead they are all into virtual reality and play Mighty Morphin' Power
Rangers. Why be King of the Hill when you can be Master of the Universe?
Hey Red Ranger, let's morph!

transcribe it--a game apparently so deadly that it was forbidden in our
Queens schoolyards way back then).
