Go Ahead, Make My Day

President Bush said in remarks today that residents of the gulf coast need to be ready for the worst. So, in addition to stocking up on water, canned goods, plywood, and batteries, reliable sources tell me that residents of Houston are also stocking up on ammunition. I am guessing that the wide spread looting that occurred in Katrina's aftermath will not be tolerated in Texas. Residents in hurricane-ravaged areas should shoot first and ask questions later if they witness any looting. As Clint Eastwood said as he portrayed Dirty Harry in the movie Sudden Impact which was released in 1983, "Go ahead, make my day."

Here's a little movie trivia from IMDb - Earth's Biggest Movie Database concerning Dirty Harry's famous line:

The phrase, "Go ahead, make my day" was originally said by actor Gary Swanson in the movie Vice Squad (1982). Swanson, who played a Hollywood vice cop, said the line, "Go ahead scumbag, make my day," to actor Wings Hauser who played a pimp.

I like the earlier version better, don't you?
