Fun Stuff

From My Father and the Man in Black (2012)
Saul Holiff: If you are concerned about the manner in which I represent you, I would be agreeable to withdrawing as your manager, and concentrate on dates only.
[Original Source: Letter to Johnny Cash; July 9, 1965]
Johnny Cash: What do you mean, "withdraw as my manager?" I want you to represent me. Let's work together and keep phrases like that out of our conversations. Black is black. Day is day.
[Original Source: Letter to Saul Holiff; July 14, 1965]
Saul Holiff: You have never failed to let me know when I have goofed up. And now you're alleging that I signed "chits" at The Mint that came to the grand sum of $100, only to be made aware, after accusing me of such a monumental theft, that I WASN'T EVEN IN LAS VEGAS at the time.
