" Pretty soon Sherburn sort of  laughed,

  not the pleasant kind but the kind that makes you feel

like when you are eating

bread that got sand in it"

-           You   had not   aged a bit , Colonel since we talked for the first time in the Y2005.

You   are still the same- a proud Southern aristocrat, talking to the lynching   mob with a rifle in your hand. I though had aged considerably.   Misery   withers us,   Colonel; we are in deep trouble even more than before. We thought   the imbecile in power   was the   worst we could get but   now we have   a droner. This one kills from afar and     then talks about peace. If     he   was in charge   in   your time, Colonel, he would   not have rushed   with the mob; he would have put you on the list and   quietly   shot you in the back. Or he would have sent a drone to destroy your house and kill all in it; so effective we had become, Colonel. Oh, BTW, he is   African- American. Turned out that we are the same after all; malice and cowardice do not discriminate.
