"There was this stupid thing on TV the other night about P.Diddy. Something about the day in the life of a rap star or music mogul. I just kept watching it, thinking, I really hate this guy. But at the end they showed how he gets down on his hands and knees to pray to God every night. The guy prays to God to protect his family and guide him toward being a better human being. Then I kind of started to like P.Diddy. I thought, When was the last time I believed in God or tried to be a better human being?"

"My old man had the strongest hand I've ever seen. When he shook your hand, he practically tore it off. World War II hardened him. He was in the Navy and survived a Kamikaze attack on his ship. But dad got mean after the war. He broke a few peoples' jaws with that hand, and the court ordered him neutered. Once the government took his balls, he was calm as a puppy."
