“It can be a hostile country. There’s nothing living in those mountains that won’t sting or bite or stab you. If you molest the plant, the plant will spike you. If you molest the animal, the animal will bite you. If you disrespect the country, it will cripple you. But I am very comfortable there. It’s my home.”

So says Tommy Lee Jones about his home turf of San Saba county in Texas, where he runs a sizable cattle ranch, to the Guardian‘s Benjamin Secher. But hell….except for the past about the spiking plant, Jones could be talking about the culture of Hollywood. Show respect. Always show respect.
