Ninjas Against Drugs

Triggered by the exciting but erroneous rumor that Democratic presidential candidate "Primal Scream" Howard Dean had a small speaking part in Ninja III: The Domination, I was boning up on my shadow warrior lore by reading a biography of famed ninja actor Sho Kosugi. I was pleasantly amazed to learn that Kosugi battled -- and perhaps battles still -- on behalf of young people everywhere as part of the life-affirming assassin organization NAD (Ninjas Against Drugs).

Snicker-inducing acronym aside, that may be the best time capsule of the 1980s that I've ever seen.
