  • “I may sound like a bible beater yelling up a revival at a river crossing camp meeting but that don’t change the truth none, there’s right and there’s wrong. You gotta do one or the other. You do the one and you’re living, you do the other and you may be walking around but you’re dead as a beaver hat.”
    - Col. Davy Crockett in The Alamo 1960, directed by John Wayne

  • I thank you, Pilgrim.
