A few minutes ago, WRT his resigning from and his berating of the BoD of
the NRA:

"Wow! Adolphus Busch IV _breaks bad on_ the NRA!"

Of course, I would have used "breaks nasty on."

But, what can you do? Well, this does open the door to my (re)introducing
the "correct" <har! har!> formula without having to worry that my non-ALS
readers won't know what I'm saying.
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.
