Not true in FreeBSD. ls -G does color, but you can also specify an ENV
variable CLICOLOR, but I'm still trying to find info on what to pass for
the variable.


You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a
reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating
the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle
for independence.
