Listen up, ladies and gentlemen. Our fugitive has been on the run for 90 minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground, barring injuries, is 4 miles-an-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive’s name is Dr. Richard Kimble. Go get him.

 

If you're going to say the above, it's got to be said with a deep Texan drawl. 

 

Alternatively, in your best Cockney; "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"

When  the white missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land.

They said ' Let us pray . ' We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.

I've thought more and more these days that what this forum really needs is an 'idiot filter'. Some posts across many threads would have me pulling out my hair if I had any.  With that in mind it's prudent to apply the mental brakes and remember Carl Hiaasen's observation:

 

"One problem with age is that patience begins to ebb".

 

So true Carl, so true. Deep breaths....deep breaths.....

"A man, to be greatly good, must imagine intensely and comprehensively; he must put himself in the place of another and of many others; the pains and pleasures of his species must become his own". Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Spoken hundreds of years ago, yet still relevant to the strivings of those trying to promote a ‘be kind’ society.
