Texas Scares Me
I had forty hours to make it from San Diego to Crawford in order to speak at Camp Casey. Made it in 30, but had to keep the blogging light, which was just as well 'cuz Texas scares the crap out of me. Between the heat, preponderance of religious propaganda, cops and Confederate flags, let's just say I didn't feel much at home. Made the mistake of getting out of my car in Midland and saw the above screed against homosexuality and Witchcraft on a car in the parking lot outside the Wal-Mart. It didn't take more than ten minutes or so before I decided that ALL sex should be banned in Midland. Try eating less and exercising more folks... maybe then sex won't seem so frightening.
I put these up using binder clips at the dead ends of frontage roads, keeping the truck parked directly in front of me as a blind. It doesn't surprise me that I don't get any pictures from West Texas... it's not a place you'd want to get caught doing this. For those brave souls who might be considering freewayblogging West Texas, I suggest using ladders against the backs of billboards. At night.
