One Armed Man
CW Rowe has it all. He owns the cotton gin, making him the wealthiest man in Harrison, Texas, and his ascendance has solidified an unshakeable belief in the system that enriched him. Confident in his deserved success, CW is partial to lecturing anyone he feels will benefit from his advice. Few things ever interrupt the purity of his vision, with the exception of the weekly visit of a young man, Ned, who lost an arm in the gin’s machinery. Ned is a little touched and believes CW can give him his arm back. On a normal day, he goes away when CW offers him five dollars, but today is anything but a normal day.
