  • The lyrics mention William T. Love, a real person who planned the canal described in the track, but did not finish it. The site later became the focus of an (unrelated) major environmental calamity. Probably the most objectionable part of this was the "Hooker Clause" by means of which the corporation attempted to absolve itself of any future blame (see the second article). [DC]
  • The "Summer of '72" sample is from a love scene [1] performed by the character duo "Julie" and "Candy", which is a strong contender for the title reference to Julie And Candy on the 2002 Geogaddi album.
