“I talked back.”

Here’s a favorite sequence of mine from the film The Grapes of Wrath.  It never fails to inspire me and make me smile.  In an age when many of us (myself included) tend to just complacently accept whatever we’re told by those in authority, without questioning it, the character of Jim Casy (played by John Carradine) is a goad: our conscience exists for a reason – we should use it!
