Once again I may be out of internet range for a few days. I'm going to be sitting in a hotel room in Kilgore, Texas. Kilgore? I tell you, there is nothing more remote than an obscure place in Texas. Even the cities that glue Dallas and Fort Worth together - Irving, Bedford, Euless, Hurst, etcetera - seem impossibly vacant, content-free, difficult to picture even when you're driving down their main streets. Maybe the town of Kilgore, three hours east of Dallas on the baking plains of East Texas, will prove me wrong.

But probably not.
