News at Eleven: This poem, typed on a manual typewriter,

begins: "Here is a revolver." It ends 11 lines later: "And nothing in human philosophy persists more strangely than the old belief that God is always on the side of those who have the most revolvers."

"It's just amazing how something written way back then is relevant today," he said.
