Government intrusion

I was reading this post over at Say Uncle. Scooter got arrested. It seems that his ex-wife has an ax to grind a called the BATF (or whateverthehell they're called this week) about Scooter's guns.

It's a damned travesty, and you can read all about it at the link. Drop some money in the defense fund.

Anyway, I decided to check my referral logs, and I see that I am being visited by nefarious agents from the state of Texas. Specifically, the State of Texas General Service Administation. To those folks, I say welcome. I love the state of Texas. Considered it a second home for a number of years, and I frequently visit there and spend my tourist dollars.

Milady and I are planning a trip to the Big Bend country this summer. I've never been that far south, because I normally get hung up around San Antonio. Did you know that the fair merchants of San Antonio will make you a marguarita just about any time you ask for one? And you can buy them by the pitcher? San Antonio is a wonderful town, as is many of the lesser known towns in the area.

Anyway, welcome, Texicans. Drop a note in comments and let me know what I need to see. We'd like to go to El Paso and hop across the border, then sit back and enjoy a little local flavor. Let me know what I'd enjoy, and what I should avoid.

I also notice a referral from Boulder County Government in the state of Colorado. Boulder is a weird town. I spent a lifetime there one week and decided I had seen enough. It's pretty, but it is weird.

You need to go way out of your way and visit Langtry and the Jersey Lily Saloon. I've always wanted to, but never had the chance.

Scooter obviously never heard the saying "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."

An exwife, a girlfriend, machine gun parts--why was he surprised when the BATF showed up?
