Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

"Soon thereafter, while chasin' down a particular lamebrained donkey and her wobbly foal, I noticed the pots and pans tinkling in the mess wagon. It weren't the usual clanking and banging neither. I felt a trembling rise right through my pony's hooves. Twisting round in the saddle, I saw a fearsome mountain of yellow dust and whirlwinds.

'Buffalo! Buffalo!' shouted the men, 'headed this way!'"
