Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Holed up: Suspect hides on property for decade - U.S. news - Crime & courts - "GUN BARREL CITY, Texas — The past decade has taken a toll on John Joe Gray, holed up on his rural East Texas land while waiting for a siege that's never happened.

He's been living on 47 acres behind a fence without running water and electricity but with plenty of guns, daring authorities to arrest him for a 10-year-old, third-degree felony warrant. He says he hasn't left his property since 2000, all the while allowing his distrust of a government he views as evil to fester."

Hat tip to David Cranmer.
And while Gun Barrel City is admittedly a great name for a town, it would also be a great name for a rock band.

Gun Barrel City would also be a good name for a Quentin Tarantino movie, preferably one with Nicolas Cage and Mickey Rourke. And maybe Christopher Walken.
