"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
- Henry David Thoreau

Jack H. Clement has always stepped to a different drummer (although, most of the time, it's been Kenny Malone). "I've got a bunch of people who say I'm a genius," the Cowboy once said. "That don't make me a genius. But you've got to be pretty smart to get all them people to say that on cue."
