Thank you so much, Matt. I was looking for a way to work in the Wayne quote. Among his many quotable lines delivered in his movie, this is a favorite. I thought closing with The Shootist quote might be a nice touch since I opened with a Wayne statement from Pilar Wayne's biography. I'm glad you enjoyed the piece.

John Wayne's quote at the end for the finish, and an opportunity for fresh appreciation of a line that was actually more than just tough talk. Nicely constructed, Derrick, I enjoyed reading the whole thing.
