    He looks like a pretty tough old bird!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Now I have something to shoot for.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    Shooting for another six months is not much of a goal.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Good find, bayern. It's great to see an older citizen still active and working the job he loves. I'd sure be interested to hear him interviewed at length about his life and career.

    Wow, what a cool article. Good for him!
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight
