The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Go ahead, get your shotgun, ‘cause if it’s not an alien coming to plant a tracking device in your sinuses, it’s a government agent coming to take it out. Neither, of course, is acceptable.
