"Earnie was ptain enough at the courthouse." "And he'll have to come through. Have yo« got another gun in the place?" I didn't answer her. 1 was thinking of what Gene Sawyer had said. tt I carried a gun fco protect myself from Earnie Berman and had to shoot him, 1 would be worse on than I would be it 1 took a beating. No, 1 wasn't going to kill anybody. Neither an instttict for self-preservation or an impulse to become what peopte thought I was «n»M make me do that.
