I watched Tombstone (1993 starring Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer, among others) again the other night. I had forgotten how many good lines there are in that movie. Of course, we all remember “I’ll be your huckleberry.” and “You tell ’em I’M coming… and hell’s coming with me, you hear?…. Hell’s coming with me!” But I think, my new favorite is a line Doc Holiday says after he and Wyatt charge across a creek to kill several of the cowboys. It goes…

Turkey Creek Jack Johnson: Why you doin’ this, Doc?
Doc Holliday: Because Wyatt Earp is my friend.
Turkey Creek Jack Johnson: Friend? Hell, I got lots of friends.
Doc Holliday: …I don’t.


Friendship is a valuable thing. I want to be a good friend, but I kinda stink at relationships. At least, maintaining them. I know that if you want friends you must be a friend. It’s something I need to work on.
