“I don’t know. The morning of the day I got sick I had been thinking … It’s good to be in something from the ground floor. I came to late for that. I know. But lately I’m getting the feeling that I came in at the end. The best is over. I think about my father. He never reached the heights like me. But in a lot of ways he had it better. He had his people, they had their standards, they had pride. Today what do we got?”
