This town takes in all kinds, it does. The woman who sells her body to the man who pays for it. The hateful, the weary, the broken, the lost, and even the butcher of Gettysburg.

Ratwater Preacher

I love my horse. I love my wife. I love my little girl. And, as for Jesus, he can join us all in Hell.
