"Ben Simons," Ma spoke up, "I don't know what you're up to, but whatever it is, it had better not be anything shady like the last trouble you got Morris into.

Nobody in his right mind would want to have a coffin opened up and expanded every time another member of the family died."

- From "My Old Man's Political Appointment" - a short story in Georgia Boy by Erskine Caldwell
