Who's read the Charles Bukowski story about when he stops off in Texas on his way to (or maybe it's from) New Orleans? I had something similar, though not exactly the same happen to me in Texas.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
