In the Old West, where men were men and so were the women, Clarence Forbes shot a house. Spooked by a varmint, Clarence launched himself momentarily skyward, and when he returned to rest on solid ground, he unburdened his holster of pistol and shot a house. While his intent was to send to eternal rest the varmint that had spooked him, the lone result of his action was a shot house. The varmint skedaddled when the shot rang out, and the house harbored a grudge for the remainder of its days. As for Clarence Forbes, he ran for sheriff and was defeated by a pail of lager. Folks in those days weren’t much for having real live human beings in elected positions. Look around. Who can blame them?
