- A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Down to the River in Ships
Rainy skies greeted us this morning as we crossed into Laos. We boarded our long boat for a leisurely
cruise down the "Mother of Rivers," the Mekong. Our day ended in the tiny town of Pak Beng, where I enjoyed a delicious water buffalo steak. Two actually. One of our troop didn't like hers after she'd taken a bite. I felt I owed it to the buffalo since on his part he'd committed 100% to the meal. For some reason I didn't feel the same way about the potato.
