    Van Buren probably isn’t 2 hours from Posty. A hop skip and a jump!

    Van Buren is where Killing Jim Miller was born. They hung him in Ada Oklahoma.

    Just a little morning factoid for you.

    Greater Ader, as it is called in these parts.

    Van Buren is about two hours from me. Holler at me when you’re coming and I’ll buy you a beer.

    My step Dad worked at KFDF radio in Van Buren when I was in second grade. That was in the days of live radio and KFDF was a gospel station on weekends. The gospel singers and bands would hang out in the lobby passing a bottle arpund in a brown bag, sometimes whole families would he in the group, all waiting their turn to go into the studio to sing a couple gospel songs live on the radio. It was quite a time in radio"
    That’s my big memory of Van Buren. That and BLT’s from the drug store across the street from the station.

    Yep sure have. Gaillard Sartain is in that movie and he’s an old regular from Tulsa TV days. He had a late nite show on local tv in the early 70s called Mazzeppa that was funny as hell.

    I hate to be a hater, but I read a couple of Grisham’s books before I realized that the man can write one hell of a set up, but he writes the worst endings in the world. So I quit him.

    To each their own!

    I liked his non-fiction book, The Innocent Man.

    But of course the ending was already done.

    After Louis L’amour, Grisham was the first author I started reading in high school.
    Good stuff. And The Firm, was a good book. Better than the movie, as they say.

    Have not read that one. I’m more of an audio books guy nowadays, since I drive so much. Might have to pick it up.

    I liked Grisham's first book. I read the 2nd and when I started the 3rd I realized they were all the same story, to me. Just my opinion. Very formulaic... as are the majority of NYT Bestseller authors.
    If we all threw our problems in a pile, and you saw everyone else's problems-- you'd take yours back.

    I thought that Pelican Brief and The Summons were both excellent reads
