"Walk softly and carry a big stick." Theodore Roosevelt quoting a West African proverb.
"Walk hard and carry a gun." Robynn Reilly
(Disclaimer: My personal views may be modestly impacted by having played fire hydrant tonight to a two-legged pittbull who simply chews up shoes and sticks. Ah committees.....Someone once said, "A moose is a horse made by a committee" to which I would add "I'm ridin' Bullwinkle off into the sunset." Goodnight saddle pals!)
