Best quote from the story.
They said Jose was born with a ring of dirt around his neck, with grime under his fingernails, and skin calloused from the grainy twist from a shovel. They said that his palms were already rough by the time he was three, and soon after he learned his primary colors, his squint was the squint of an aged-laborer. They said he was a born worker.
I thought this story was very good. I thought it would teach a lot of people about how respect comes before cowardliness. It would also teach people not to believe every sly deal that comes out of someones mouth.
