A Killer Burger At The Huntsville Cafe

13 February 2014, 09:42
Elena and I are considering taking a trip to the Houston area in August. CNN featured an institution in Huntsville, Texas. It's the Huntsville Cafe. The main item on the menu is the killer burger. It is famous for a large bulletin board that is prominently displayed. Each time some unfortunate man or woman is executed nearby at the Walls Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, their facial image is cut out of their mug shot and it's pasted on the board. As of today the board has some 505 pictures.
   I made the following "gallows humor" comment to Elena:
"Honey we can have a killer burger for lunch at the Huntsville Cafe. We can then walk around Huntsville and tour Stephen F. Austin State College (where LBJ graduated from.) At six in the evening we can go over to the Walls Unit and watch an execution."
   Please reflect on this for a while.

South Africans - Delusional?

South Africa, as a country, is in trouble. It's not just because of the so-called "leadership" - though that is a massive factor - the citizenry has its own role to play in this sorry state of affairs. Read more...
