In the West I know, a man could get hurt in a lot of ways - trampled, shot, hung, busted up, starved, died of thirst, surprised by Indians - a lot of dangers. The most dangerous of all... well, let me put it this way. I knew a fellow once; he was the fasted gun in the West; threw the strongest punch in the West; had the richest gold claim in the West... he also had the softest head in the West. Didn't know real danger when he saw it. Real danger, my friend, is a woman.
