"I'm going to speak my mind because I have nothing to lose."--S.I. Hayakawa

Let me rephrase that...

It happened on Amchitka:

Construction worker complains to foreman about the difficulty of the work.

Foreman replies: If it was easy, the women and kids would be doing it.

Uncomfortable pause as both remember their supervisor's wife, son, and daughter are all working on the same job.

    Humbly, I must admit that I've had my share of talk first, think later incidents.

    Have a pleasant weekend, Gully.
