Wanted to stop by and tell you that I'm having a one year blogavesary RAK. Come by and see me.

Oh, wow. I liked him until that last bit. That's the one thing that will just make me crazy, pretty much.

2008-04-14T15:06:00.000-05:00

Wow! He was an amazing man. Yea, too bad about the child thing. He would have been a great legend. Now he's just a child molester.

Interesting post, Travis. Slim sounded like a great character until the child molester part came up. Isn't it disappointing when our heroes turn out to have ugly secrets?

I did my first "My Town Monday" post today, My Town Monday: County Versus Town at
http://flightsafancy.blogspot.com/.

This should be a lot of fun!

Slim sounds like a helluva guy. I wonder if he could beat Tiger Woods with an oar.

Sorry Travis - I was way too sick this weekend to work on a post for you. I'll make up for it next week.

But this post was quite interesting. I vaguely knew about Amarillo Slim but had no idea of the story there!

2008-04-14T10:59:00.000-05:00

I can forgive a lot of vices. I'm about as far left as you can get. But for child molesters, I want the death penalty. There is no rehabilitation. ANd the chain of hurt fans out.

This was a great post. I liked his story up until that point.

We've got our Peternity MTM up at Women of Mystery- Clare Toohey

P.S. I'm a fan of Amarillo Slim's legend and hijinks, but I didn't know about that criminal band of slime attached to him.

Very good post Travis...and just so you know...I actually posted and got on the MYtown Monday bandwagon...

I hope you're feeling better today!

Yours,

Me

2008-04-14T07:02:00.000-05:00

Sorry to hear about Amarillo Slim's misdeeds, but he was never my favorite poker player. Of the old guard, I prefer Doyle Brunson (and if he's got nasties in his past, don't tell me). My favorite, though, is Daniel Negreanu.

Thanks for sharing. Even though I don't always comment, I enjoy reading your Monday posts. =o)

2008-04-14T05:11:00.000-05:00

That is a colorful character, and what a life! I wonder what Hollywood will do with that story (Bambi-fy it?)
Your town is way more interesting than mine, but I posted a My Town post for sleepy Montchauvet, lol.

Thanks for sharing Amarillo Slim. His exploits sound legendary. Sorry to hear about the negative things, of course.

2008-04-13T22:05:00.000-05:00

Oooooh Travis, when you learn about personality disorders you realize that there's more operating with this guy than just a need for dough and fame. Many people want those things but they don't necessarily resort to such risky and criminal behavior.

I wasn't surprised at all to learn about the bad stuff he did. It fits with the rest of his accomplishments.

Of course it's that very behavior that made him ideal for Hollywood.

Hope you're feeling better. Glad to see you're able to keep up with the demands of being the My Town boss.

2008-04-13T21:08:00.000-05:00

I've got a post on my site.

Even a gambler knows when to fold... and you know Hollywood will twist the story into something unrecognizable one way or another. IMNHO

2008-04-13T20:27:00.000-05:00

Great stories about a truly colorful character. I'd never heard that about the molestation charges, which dials down his appeal factor to below zero in my book. Talk about Slim Shady.

My post is up.

Amarillo slim was colorful but apparently took that a bit a too far, as you noted.
