  •  Years ago, my little old Alsatian grandpa left (3+ / 0-)

    a bar in Nevada after paying for his beer from a big roll of bills pulled from his pocket. He drove out of the parking lot followed by a couple of thugs from the bar, who then tried twice to run his car off the road. On the third try, Grandpa stopped the car, reached into the glove compartment for his German Luger and shot the guy who was approaching the car through the heart.

    "Get him out of the road or you'll join him," he yelled at the other guy, and then drove off. Nothing was ever said -- or done -- about the incident; I suppose everyone figured the thugs got what they deserved.

      That's a family story worth writing down for posterity. I'm not being snarky, down the road years from now someone is going to be so psyched to read that.

      And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine
