    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Kind of interesting timing since the children's book inspired by Colbert's interview with him just came out today.

    I would argue that is the badass-est Carroll ever to live. Not just cars, but chicken raising. Also, the fact that he told a heart that wasn't his to live in his own chest for 20+ years is pretty amazing. Sad loss.

    Mary Kennedy - Robt. Kennedy Jr.'s wife - committed suicide at their NY home. She hanged herself in a barn on the property.
