Billy Jack aka Tom Laughlin R.I.P.

Back in the day, we used to go to drive-in movie theaters and watch asinine movies like this one:  so bad they were good.  Born Losers introduced the character Billy Jack, portrayed by Tom Laughlin.  Laughlin also wrote and directed the film, and would go on to make at least 3 more films featuring the half-breed Viet Nam vet and martial arts master Billy Jack (this was a few years before Bruce Lee kicked and punched his way to stardom).  Anyhow, Tom Laughlin died last week at the age of 82, so may we raise our glasses and salute Billy Jack, may he rest in peace.
