Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Inc., wrote thus.

Y'all, the expression is,

"Don't let the screendoor hit you

congregants walking out on his sermon, If y'all are going to rip us

Unless Rmoney is elected.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
