I have that soundbite as my text alert on my phone.

RIP. I never realized who the actor was, but I love the Mongo character.

Alex was a funny guy. I still remember his Faygo commercials. My favorite was when he was talking about how Diet Faygo helped him to stay so slim and trim...while eating a pizza. The straight guy voice asks "But Alex, what about the Pizza?", and Alex replies "Silly, Faygo doesn't make diet pizza!"
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
