Who his father is wlould be incidental. Just because a top gunfighter has a son does not automatically give the boy the same skills. Reflexes, hand eye coordination, certainly, but a fast draw, or using a sword is muscle memory, and that has to be trained over years, not weeks.

I do not know what TFU is in reference to.

You misread my reply. I said it didn't work logically for Lucas. He did it, but it would have been stupid for someone to announce what the thug did in that loud a voice. You didn't have to have them say out loud 'Hey we're pirates! Join the crew!' You could have had the leader ask if Luke knows his name, but in an intentionally lowered voice. If Luke doesn't know he is a pirate, he can say it again in a soft tone.

In the kind of cantina pirates would hang out in, you have to worry about informewrs, because the police have an idea which bars those are as well. Not to mention listening devices, etc. If you get a chance, see a movie called I Love You to Death, where a pair of unprofessional 'professional killers' leave after bungling their assignment, and are caught within hours because they boasted about it in a bar.


The Dread Pirate Roberts: You have heard of me, haven't you?

Luke Skywalker, head cocked to the side, then shakes it no.

Roberts (Leaning forward and lowering his voice): My crew and I assure that money flows in all directions, from the rich to the poor, or from corporations to the little man.

Luke (As if light is dawning): Ah, you're a smuggler?

Roberts laughs: No, a pirate.

"Luke (almost shouting): A Pirate!

Roberts dives for the floor as blaster fire rips through where he was.Glares at Luke: Great, why not post a bloody billboard?

'To argue with those who have renounced the use and authority of reason is as futile as to administer medicine to the dead.' Now who said that?
