“Stonewall Jackson Was Trash Himself”

This is one of my all-time favorite Western fight scenes.  You just gotta love Jack Palance as “Jack Wilson” in the movie, Shane (1953).  I know this is no way to mark the day that Stonewall Jackson died on May 10, 1863, but you can just attribute it to the fact that I am a “low down lying Yankee.”

      Kevin you seem to enjoy stirring the Pot.

      He enjoys tumping it over, actually.

      You gotta wonder just how many angry, spittle-flecked e-mails the dude gets. I think he lets through a token one here every now and then just for entertainment’s sake.

        Actually, I don’t think most of what I say is really that controversial. It is for that very small vocal group that believes that I am somehow engaged in a war against all things southern/Confederate. It’s simple nonsense and I’ve addressed the faulty assumptions in these arguments.

      O.K., as a Raiders fan I just have to ask……Lane Kiffin? Really?
