A commenter on TCW once nominated Mr.Tilley for a Pullitzer. I guess Mike took it seriously....Don't get carried away Mike!
While I enjoy reading Mr. Tilley's writing for its own sake, he gets carried away all too often with hyperbole.....but then who would read his stuff if he didn't hype and spin?(He even does this on TV now with that BillyBob guy..excuse me D Bob)
Watch "AM with Silley T Bob and Billey D Bob"?...Nah, stil no "ring" to it.

But when it comes down to compromise, rationality, respect.....fuggedabowdit!
Try to work things out with the establisment and you get patronized,then stonewalled. After that you are treated as the "devil incarnate" which would be par for the course here in the Bible Belt.
That's why we have a "Billy(bob)Sunday" as a City Director I suppose.
Who needs to classics like "Peyton Place", "Town Without Pity"? We got "Fort Smith Live"!...No authors/editors needed, the story is self-perpetuating about a town which is self-destructive and still not ready for prime time.
Thanks for the inspiration,Mike!
