Miker, I find it difficult to answer this question by either a yes or a no. So instead, I'll just ask for some translations.

Bitterroot (v good book, isn't it) Chapter 12, section on Tommy Lee Stolz:

"He'd had a good life dry-walling"

"Even that one-bit he did on a road gang in the Keys wasn't bad."

Different languages....


Oh, and -

>"That puts the canary among the cats..."
