Quote for the Day

"The men American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try and tell them the truth"
quote by "Johnny Rawhide"

Explains a lot, huh?

Howdy Dave -

This here is Johnny Rawhide, and I noticed how you too liked that there quote. I've ridden many a trail in my time, and I tend to while away the time around a cracklin' campfire by readin' books.
The quote you noted is one of my favorite ones, but I weren't the feller who made it up.
A feller named H.L. Mencken, a hard-scrabblin', two-fisted, reporter, was the one who first jotted that line down.
I am mighty happy you stopped by the Stinkhorn Rodeo and did some readin' and want to say thanks for makin' a note of it here on your page.

Well, I got some chores here at the Ranch to take care of, so I'll say adios and happy trails.
