    Laura? Army brat? Maiden name Kinslow? Gorgas Circle at Fort Sam? San Antonio Little Theater mid ’60’s. I was USAF and worked as a DJ at KITY-KONO. Tall but no longer skinny and no longer driving a little red sports car. If it is, indeed, THE Laura Kinslow, I’d love to hear from you.

    Thanks, Chris. The post about Unk gets the most hits consistently. It makes me feel good that Uncle Seymour is still searched for, people still listen to Townes, and folks all over the world can know what it was like to live in those times.

    I cannot believe the unemployment rate and the economy in the US has recovered so well after 2007, as a citizen from another country I could not have believed it. I know there is a lot of shit going down over there and really some of the control structures and issues with the police seem strange. No guns means no armed police, that is the situation in my country… but what the hell… They are all right wing for me repub and democrat it is a crazy place. Horses for courses I guess
