"There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas,

the wives and the kids upon the death of their loved one. Others

"I'm the master of low expectations."
"First, let me make it very clear, poor people aren't necessarily killers. Just because you happen to be not rich doesn't mean you're willing to kill."
