When bruised, belligerent Randy Travis was arrested after a car accident, the locals went into overdrive.
A couple of them ran to the jail, one to offer the faded country singer his cash bail money and a ride home, and the other to offer legal services and a Texas Longhorns hat to shield Randy’s fucked up face from the photographers.
Sherman, Texas is a closeknit, caring community, we’re told–the kind of place that truly reaches out and cares for their own.
Well, it sounds more like enabling to me.
And I certainly hope they show the same kind of caring to the non-celebrities who are found laying drunk in the road, and who then threaten to shoot and kill the officers.
