Having the Last Word

It may come as a shock to some people but we do still prosecute moonshiners in this country. My office winds up representing people in those cases every now and then. One of the more famous shiners, Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton, was recently convicted and sentenced to 18 months in prison. He was 62 years old.

Rather than report to prison yesterday, he killed himself. But he went out with a message, courtesy of his custom made tombstone:

See a picture here. It's not how I'd go out, but he certainly did it his way.

Wow - a real life, honest-to-god moonshiner, in denim coveralls and with a big, long beard. And people really question why stereotypes exist!
