How I feel when I listen to DAMP is equivalent to how Teddy Roosevelt felt at the end of this story... By 1883, Teddy was already weary about politics; he had recently lost a bid to become the nominee for Minority Speaker of the House, so he decided to head West for a little R&R. He constructed a log cabin near Medora, N.D., which was designed as a frontier retreat from his New York City residence ― and what’s a frontier retreat without some frontier shenanigans?One evening, Teddy was entering a saloon in the nearby town of Mingasville when a drunken patron fired several shots at him. The cowboy then pointed his firearm at Roosevelt’s face, mocked him with the term “four eyes,” and ordered him to buy a round for everyone in the establishment. Teddy responded by laughing in the man’s face, then charging him and beating him senseless. The cowboy fired one more shot at “four eyes”, which missed completely; Teddy then pounded the man’s head into the wooden bar until he was unconscious.Once the fracas was over, Teddy hauled his would-be assailant to a shed and locked him up until morning, but not before he muttered ... “I think he’s had enough.”DAMP is Teddy Roosevelt, my ears are the cowboy, and witty-truth-and-fun are the bar.Keep on Keepin' On Guys!
