“Harley Watts looked down a long, flat stretch of Interstate 40 west of Shamrock, Texas, the way a man would size up an old acquaintance from across a crowded barroom. You know, that one ambiguous instant between the time you see them and they see you when you have to decide whether you’re glad to see them or not. Actually Harley and I-40 were more than casual acquaintances.”

(Steve Earle’s “Wheeler County” from “Doghouse Roses” 2001)
