That walking-tall stick had a way of persuading a person to _get some
act-right_ about him real quickly. Before he could send the message from
his brain to his legs to get the rest of his body out of there, I cut them
out from under him.
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.
