Subject: RE: Gunsmoke? Chester or festus?

East of Broken Bow
Festus, likely because I once knew an old guy a lot like him.
When Festus was asked why he didn't learn to read, he said (something like) Why would I learn to read writin' when I don't know if the feller that wrote the writin' wrote the writin' right? If he didn't write the writin' right, then my readin' wouldn't be right either. When I talks at a feller face to face, I can tell right away by the look in his eye, if what he's a sayin is truthful, or if he's just a jawin' away.
