“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

"The city is crowded my friends are away and I'm on my own
It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

Fine, whatever.

A. The Symphony, since moving to the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts, is no longer accessible to many but season ticket holders; therefore, I don't have the access to really care who is the conductor.

B. The first thing The Powers That Be do whenever anyone moves here from anywhere else is dress them up in a ridiculous Cowboy hat despite the fact that the vast majority of citizens of Amarillo haven't dressed that way in three-quarters of a century.

C. Many short-time residents (for example, Shearle Furnish, English Department Chair at WTAMU, who is orginally from Kentucky) participate in this charade by willingly dressing up in cowboy hats and cowboy boots despite the fact that these costumes do not fit their personalities.

There. Impossible to misunderstand.

But boring as hell.
