    It always looked to me like rolling a cigarette was a pretty big pain-in-the-neck, much less trying to do it while astride a horse. So cowpokes biting off a chaw to get their fix seemed logical enough for me.

    A trip from The Pentagon to Conniption involves a wood-fired steam engine into town, followed by a one-horsepower horse out to the crash site… I’ve got to admit that Gen. Gantry is not letting the disorientation get to him.

    Though instead of a Washington insider, maybe the Army should have sent that old cavalry man Col. Potter – a man with plenty of horse sense…

    It may be one way to while away an afternoon, but I’m pretty sure a two-man crap game is about as interesting to the gambling type as a two-man poker game.

    So Chigger is a “sporting” man – but is this a way of the boss hinting that starting a proper, floating game is a way for Wilmer to gain favor?

    Too bad for Chigger that Hugo Blinker already had washed out with the company, birds of a feather.
