“We don’t much like your kind…”

Back to Normal Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: James Silverthorn arrived at the Moosehead County Jail where he was greeted by Chief Deputy Allen Simpson, “You must be Hiram’s grandson, Marshal Silverthorn called and warned me you were coming—you brought your college transcripts, I hope?”

“I did, Chief Deputy—and words from Marshal Silverthorn.”


“If you don’t hire Jimmy, I’ll ban you from the entire reservation,” Silverthorn reluctantly replied.

“That would include ALL of Moosehead County—but it wouldn’t stop my paycheck. That sounds like a good deal to me.”

Simpson paused just long enough to see young Silverthorn’s face devolve into “Oh CRAP,” and added, “Welcome—rookie!”

Season 13—Adventure 6—Back to Normal?— Episode 2—Scene 1… On the Northern Ojibwe Reservation. Lake Nipigon, in Ontario, Canada… Chairperson Sara Running Deer, William White Eagle, his identical twin, James, Tatonga Rushing Water, Thomas Lone Wolf, Willie Howling Coyote, James Laughing Brook, and Eddie Standing Bear—the executive tribal council, and de facto tribal rule-enforcers—were outside the hall, “Leave now, gentlemen—and don’t come back unless the Eagle Point Band falls in line.”

“Obviously, our first plan didn’t work,” William replied, “We may have to take extreme measures.”

“Exactly why I’m sending you gentlemen—or should I say—warriors?”

“We should include enough people to take over the entire reservation,” William White Eagle suggested.

“That would take a large number of warriors,” Running Deer replied, “There are maybe six more members we could trust.”

“We’ll find them along the way—IF we can compensate them.”

“Promise them any amount—and when time comes for them to collect—kill them.”

Back to Normal?— Episode 2—Scene 2… A week later at the Moosehead Jail… “You’ll ride with Deputy Eagle Talon today, Jimmy,” Chief-Deputy Simpson reasoned assigning Silverthorn to patrol with Eagle Talon—who was an “at large” deputy patrolling the entire county—was the best way to train this promising young man, “He’ll give you the lay of the land, so to speak.”

“Yes sir.”

“Knock it off with that ‘sir’ crap,” Simpson laughed, “And we’ll get along just fine.”

“Yes (pause….) SIR!”

As Silverthorn and Eagle Talon walked out to begin their patrol, Eagle Talon quipped, “Son—you’re going to do just fine—Bigass likes you.”

Episode 2—Scene 3… Somewhere north of Moosehead County… The caravan stopped along a dirt road where they met-up with a small group of—let’s just say, GENTLE READER—unsavory characters. “You fellas know what you’re in for if you join us?”

“We don’t much like your kind, Redskin,” the leader of unsavory characters replied, “But yer money spends—and we’ll hold-up our part of the deal.”
