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


"Strap began to notice the folks of San Felipe steering clear of him. There's some would conclude this was because they were plain tired of getting knocked down. But that would be an ordinary thought and not one that would grace the mind of Strap Buckner.

'It is ever thus with a man of genius!' he lamented. 'To be misunderstood, avoided by the common folk of the world!'"
