".and what the hell kind of Texan are you anyway, eatin' that $#@$#%&$ tofu chili ? Jeeez Louise, man...next you'll be tellin' me you put catsup on your enchilladas." That was the only way to "out you" and make sure you weren't one 'a them Nouveau Texans you see down on SOCO and infestin' the Hill Country these days. I'm of the opinion that beans in chili is a sacrilege second only to tucking your pants into your boots if you ain't working a ranch! Threadgill's and Antone's bring back some good Austin memories, though I went to school 'up north'. I also still have a B&W photo of the Armadillo back before they tore it down. I probably need to scan that... You still a boo' sh*tter, but you are one of OUR boo' sh*tters! Like I said, kindred spirits!!! (laughing)

Note: for the uninitiated, the Chuckwagon was the mess hall/cafeteria/coffee shop at the Texas Union Commons..Antone's was an infamous blues club, and Threadgill's was a beer joint in what used to be an old filling station where Janis Joplin ( among others ) performed before she made the big time...

Well, you're right about the Native Texan part...not only was I born here but my family has been here since the days of the Republic..and yep, I have two degrees from UT Austin, but not in Liberal Arts...I majored in Chuck Wagon, with a minor in Antone's and Threadgill's...... I've actually been retired for several years now and when I'm not running rivers in Arkansas or humping up a trail out west I live down here on the Gulf Coast where I manage to subsist on fresh shrimp, crabs, oysters, red snapper, flounder and gumbo....and what the hell kind of Texan are you anyway, eatin' that $#@$#%&$ tofu chili ? Jeeez Louise, man...next you'll be tellin' me you put catsup on your enchilladas.

Poppy? Presumptuous? Me? Nevuuuuh. No ma'am. Pateeto? I can tell you're from Texas, because you can spin a line a' boo' sh*t like a native son. Ya must've been a UT Liberal Arts major, and now you're running a natural foods deli and alternative lifestyle bookstore somewhere on SO-CO, probably near St. Eds. In fact, I think I bought some tofu chili from you Wednesday, didn't I? Couldn't get you off that Internet long enough to take my money, could I? Kindred spirits, son... You can't BS a BS-er!

Despite being a second-rate novel by a third-rate philosopher this book has inspired a cult-like following....back in the sixties when I first read it there were people carrying it around, under-lining passages, reciting it to one another as if it were Holy Scripture...when you tried to have a conversation with them it became obvious that they and the Little-Red-Book totin' Maoists were flip sides of the same coin...both displayed fanatical and un-swerving devotion to their leader, and neither side had any tolerance for dissenting opinion...even after it became common knowledge that ol' Ayn was bonking Nat Brandon, the leader of her cult who was twenty-five years younger than she was, the hard-core Randians were undeterred...interestingly, both political extremes, Randian Objectivism and Marxist-Leninism, are based on a fundamental lack of understanding of mankind's basic nature as a social primate....

...and who might 'these folks' be? Aren't you a tad presumptuous? ;-)

Most of these folks couldn't get past the first 10 pages... no photos!
