That is only as an after school snack for kids. Besides, it is my understanding that a Texan would have a Dr. Pepper.

You're not a Texan! And, speaking as a southerner, whilst I love a Dr Pepper, one is supposed to enjoy a Royal Crown with a Moon Pie, Texans notwithstanding!

The Coca-Cola company is mad at Texas because they use "coke" with a small "c" to mean soda or pop.

You can get an RC, out of the fountain, at Frank's on Cahuenga, a block from the Illiad bookshop.

A petition to have the evil lion-murdering dentist charged.

https://petitions.whitehouse.g...ace-justice-zimbabwe

Here is further information, so that while you are at it, you can give him an earful!

Dentist Walter James Palmer
10851 Rhode Island Ave S
Bloomington, MN 55438

Phone number (952) 884-5361
This was his Business website riverbluffdental.com but it seems to be offline now!

My personal preference would be to put him and Thom Mayne on an island in some sort of Most Dangerous Game/Hunger Games situation and have them either kill each other off or die slowly while avoiding each other. Then take their heads and mount them as trophies!

The petition went through in record time!

Among many others, I've weighed in on their Facebook page.

"Nothing I could find within the entire vocabulary available to me could possibly be bad enough to apply to you. You should not only be required to surrender the lion's head, but your own as well! May you spend the rest of your short and miserable life languishing in a Zimbabwean prison, starting the sooner the better!"

EXTRADITE THE TROGLODYTE!

Add to the list of people who really deserve to be thrown to the lions! http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/01/...lled245pStoryGalLink

http://www.npr.org/sections/th...lion-researcher-says

The question is, who shot the lion mistaken for Jericho? Where is the evil Dr. Palmer? Could it be that after being forced to turn over Cecil's remains, he returned to gun down another lion?

The South Pasadena, CA library is hosting a 95th birthday party for Ray on August 22nd. A reading from the last actor to play Captain Beatty will be doing a reading of scenes from the book that were not in the movie. Admission is free and there will be cake.

It's encouraging to know that some people value the man and his legacy instead of wanting to destroy everything associated with him.
