You have to keep this going forever. These are a delight to read. The history of our town is as colorful as any I have ever read and you prove it every time you post a "new" entry.

I've been a playwright for the last twenty or so years, and most of my stories take place in El Paso. I feel I could write a thousand more because this area has so much history, and culture, and controversy embedded in it.

Keep it up.

Please do continue!
