“O Lord, there is no God like You in heaven above ir on earth beneath, keeping covenant and showing loving kindness to Your servants who walk before You with all their heart.”
1 Kings 8:23
“The unrelenting pressure of trying to keep up with the line has encouraged widespread methamphetamine use among meatpackers. Workers taking ‘crank’ feel charged and self-confident, ready for anything. Supervisors have been known to sell crank to their workers or supply it in free in return for certain favors, such as working a second shift. Workers who use methamphetamine may feel energized and invincible, but are actually putting themselves at much greater risk of having an accident. For obvious reasons, a modern slaughterhouse is not a safe place to be high.”

From the annals of IQP research:
“In the novella, Ellis Boyd Redding was a white Irishman. The fact that Morgan Freeman, a very fine African American actor, played the role led to very, and I mean very, little change as a result of this decision. In fact, in both the novella and the script, when he is asked why he is called Red, he answers, “I suppose it’s because I’m Irish.” A good line in the novella then becomes a great line of dialogue in the script.”
