From Mike Russell
Thoreau on protection from our ‘protectors’
"I went to the store the other day to buy a bolt for our front door, for as I told the storekeeper, the Governor was coming here.

'Aye,' said he, 'and the legislature too.'

"Then I will take two bolts," said I.

He said there had been a steady demand for bolts and locks of late, for our protectors were coming."


- Henry David Thoreau (1859)
