Austin, Texas - The Wild Wild West?
Back in the day there was a popular TV show called “Wild Wild West” about American government secret agents in the west. One agent was Artemis who was a master of disguise; a handy skill to have when you need to sneak into places. The other agent was Jim. He was the hottie hunk who always got to kiss the girl.

Had not thought about this series in a while, but my significant other has a way of triggering memories . How so? Like this!
A few weeks back was a typical Sunday morning like every other Sunday. Attended worship services and came back home. Turned on the telly to find out the PBS schedule for the evening and heard a news report while changing channels.
There had been two officer-involved shootings that very day!
Couple of days later, was watching the traffic report (don't know why as I work at home) and while the young woman was giving the report she mentioned to try to avoid a certain area because _____?
There had been a shooting! I'm like: What??!! It's only Tuesday!!
My husband casually remarks: “Looks like we're living in the wild wild west!”
Voila! The trigger effect!
We relocated to Austin, Texas in 1998. Never saw this city in that light before.
That's it! Next person to draw a gun in this town is gonna get a blue bonnet stuck in it!!!
