The groups had united forces for a retaliatory attack on regional Comanche groups who had been staging raids on whites in the area, during what came to be called the Buffalo Hunters’ War. Over the course of five days in the near-waterless Llano Estacado, four soldiers and one buffalo hunter died.

When African-American Calvin Palmer (58) arrives in Heaven he discovers that it isn’t much different than the line he has been waiting in at the DMV. He collapses at the DVM (presumably of a heart attack), but he awakes in something like a processing center for Heaven. There is a line for Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindi etc. Everyone is patiently waiting, but the line isn’t moving. So Calvin turns around and exits the building and finds himself back in Chicago.

There are two reasons a ghost remains on earth – 1) to seek some sort of revenge and 2) the other to so some great good.
