    “Vail”? Like the city? Or am I trying to find meaning in nothing more than an unusual spelling choice?

      Yeah I was confused by the quote too. I think it might be a biblical reference to the christian “vale of tears” http://bit.ly/1kThUNn

        I’m sure that that’s what it is…I think Crumb just misspelled it.
