As ye sow...

"As ye sow so shall ye reap." Sounds very cool but every time I mutter it to myself I think of Emilio Estevez's reedy voice telling Jack Palance to "Reap it, Sheriff," and a small red hole appears in his forehead. In the 80s melodrama was cool.

Does that mean melodrama is no longer cool? Hardly; ask any middle-schooler. We're just canny and ironic about it now. That or we're no longer in middle school.
