Yeah he could talk bollocks and act like a prick, but he was one of the good guys. I don't know if this is a direct quote from the man himself or whether it was a figment of Oliver Stone's imagination, but I think it sums up what I've gleaned of Jim through reading many books and articles about him.

A sentiment I've identified with many times.
