TX History – A Novella by R. Nephi Smith
A flare burns brightly over Portillo,TX tonight.
All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Likewise, all businesses, religious organizations and brand names are fictitious, and not intended to disparage any real institutions they may happen to resemble. Any references to actual recording artists, song titles, or late night talk shows occur without any express permission whatsoever. How you like me now?
I use the phrase “Golden Report” to refer to a sound, and in no way intend any connection to Jerry Golden’s Golden Report, which is an actual report report. I should have Googled that first, my bad, Shalom.
