Re: Re: OT-CHAT: CULT: burning borers

Years ago, I was director of the Indianapolis Human Rights Commission.
Harold Hatcher, a Quaker from North Carolina, was director of the Indiana
Civil Rights Commission.   Harold was committed to non-violence when it came
to dealing with human relations problems, but his garden was something else
again.  On a visit to his home, we noticed a row of tiny mounds alongside
his garden, each marked with a little wooden cross.  On being queried by one
of the group, Harold admitted that the occupants were squirrels, picked off
with his .22.  We kidded him about how this didn't seem to tally with his
devotion to non-violence.  "Well," said Harold, grinning a bit sheepishly,
"to everythin' theah is a limit, and when a squirrel reaches the edge of
mawh gawhden, he has reached his limit!"  --  Griff
