What do you mean? Isn't everyone around Terlingua just like this guy???

Not hardly. While Terlingua is the TX epicenter of weird, only exceeded by the larger weirdville of Austin, this "local" (Ty Mitchell) was an actor. While he apparently owns a bar in Marfa, his connection to the events in Terlingua was solely as a hired hand to lend "atmosphere" to the clickbait Nat Geo drivel.

Archie Gill, the owner of Terlingua Auto Service, is an authentic Terlingua resident and he would have been a superior choice for the role.

Beyond the actual homicide, apparent incompetent prosecution and unbelievable verdict, the the Nat Geo production was low quality soap opera. NGS used to be a respected journalistic organization. Not anymore.
I quizzed a local about Badlands. She just rolled her eyes and said "I'm glad they're gone". I said "me too" and smiled.

It's been a long time since I read J. O. Langford's "Big Bend, a Homesteader's Story" about how he developed the Hot Springs resort before WWI, but it contains a description of how the entire countryside for miles around lit up at night as bright as day for no reason that he could imagine. If I remember correctly he said this lasted for hours and may have happened on several successive nights. I have never heard of anyone else witnessing this although there were other scattered settlers around at that time.

I have read that book, it is terrific. If memory serves me, it was a comet or a meteor.

I'd just a soon people didn't do shows about this kind of thing in the Big Bend area. Especially since I own property near Big Bend in Brewster county.

Ah-ha! You're obviously part of the conspiracy!

 :victory: :eusa_clap: :eusa_dance:

Indeed. Roswell would welcome the notoriety and exposure. They have a UFO festival every late June or early July. It's become a big deal. Everyone in Roswell believes in UFOs, at least to the extent they bring in substantial revenues and economic benefits each year.
