I tell ya there, there were these two old guys ranched up together, down home. Earl and Rich. And they was the joke of town, even though they were pretty tough ol’ birds. Anyway they, they found Earl dead in an irrigation ditch. Took a tire iron to ‘im. Spurred him up, drug him ’round by his dick ’till it pulled off. … I wasn’t… nine years old. My daddy, he made sure me and brother seen it. Hell for all I know, he done the job.
