"Is This The Way To..."

Amarillo, United States


I will NOT be hugging my pillow in this town!
This is where we say goodbye to Route 66, as we head south to Lubbock (home of Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings and Tanya Tucker).

Crackpots and Conspiracy Theorists

Dallas, United States


At Dealey Plaza I didn't need to pay to go upstairs to the Sixth Floor Museum and look out the window - the answers were free from the guys who were there on the day back in November 1963.

Another Bunch of Crazies

Waco, United States


Texas really is the place to set up if you're part of the lunatic fringe - remember David Koresh and The Branch Davidian?
I'm surprised Tom Cruise and the Scientologists aren't in Texas.
