This one has special relevance for any of us who've ever worked or spent any time on Alcatraz:

"Wait till you get in your bunk tonight. The fog settles in over the bay and the siren in the lighthouse begins to moan. It's just the same in here as being in your grave - only you miss the fun of being dead."

--Tough Tony Burke, "Alcatraz Island", 1937

It's you and me, JB.
