So he's a Jet for life?
All the way! From his first cigarette to his last dyin' day.
What is Jet for life?
Buy ammunition and magazines.

You'll shoot your eye out!

West side story.

The two gangs were the sharks and the jets.

Frank, it's a really swaggering song from Westside Story with Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn and Rita Moreno.
"When you're a Jet,
You're a Jet all the way
From your first cigarette
To your last dyin' day.

When you're a Jet,
Let them do what they can,
You got brothers around,
You're a family man.

You're never alone,
You're never disconnected.
You're home with your own—
When company's expected,
You're well protected!

Then you are set
With a capital J,
Which you'll never forget
Till they cart you away.
When you're a Jet,
You stay
A Jet!

When you're a Jet,
You're the top cat in town,
You're the gold-medal kid
With the heavyweight crown!

When you're a Jet,
You're the swingin'est thing.
Little boy, you're a man;
Little man, you're a king!

The Jets are in gear,
Our cylinders are clickin'!
The Sharks'll steer clear,
'Cause ev'ry Puerto Rican
'S a lousy chicken!

Here come the Jets
Like a bat out of hell—
Someone gets in our way
Someone don't feel so well!

Here come the Jets!
Little world, step aside,
Better go underground,
Better run, better hide!

We're drawin' the line,
So keep your noses hidden!
We're hangin' a sign
Says "Visitors forbidden,"
And we ain't kiddin!

Here come the Jets—
Yeah! And we're gonna beat
Every last buggin' gang
On the whole buggin' street!

I was a little too young then, but when the movie came out in 1961, it made a big impression on junior-high/middle school boys. They used to have comb fights, and one coworker said that he was walking home from school and a boy jumped out from behind a bush, asked "Do you wanna be a Jet?" and slashed his forehead with a plastic comb.

And now Andrew Cuomo is going against Sharks.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .

Thank you for the clarification. I need to watch that again.

In other news, Meg is going to hit theaters Aug 9th.

Maybe people will stay out of the water like they did with Jaws?

Going by the trailer, maybe they'll stay out of the theaters.
Watergate didn't have a body count.
