    My first wife is from Starkville, and I went to college there.

    The curfew was long gone by that time... it's actually a pretty nice town.:)

    George Washington got in trouble for riding his horse too fast on a Sunday.

    I live in Indiana where we still have some Blue Laws in effect. Considering the under 18 murder rate in Indy, curfew might not be a bad idea.

    I'm in the dark here. Who is this guy?

    The tag board on his chest says 4th October 65.

    What is the relevance of 11 May 65?

    I am obviously missing something. :confused:

    Mr. Johnny Cash the “Man In Black” had a famous bad boy outlaw image. With song like “Folsom Prison Blues“an his live concerts “At Folsom Prison” and “At San Quentin” it would lead you to believe he was a hardened criminal, yet Cash never served a prison sentence. He was arrested seven times for misdemeanors and never spent more then one night in jail. His most famous arrest being this arrest on October 4, 1965 in El Paso, Texas.
    The “Man in Black” was returning by plane from a trip to Juarez, Mexico when he was arrested by a narcotics officers at the El Paso International Airport. The officers suspected he was smuggling heroin from Mexico, but instead found 688 Dexedrine capsules (amphetamines) and 475 Equanil (sedatives or tranquilizers) tablets that the singer had hidden inside his guitar case.
    Because the pills were prescription drugs rather than illegal narcotics, Cash paid a $1000 fine and received a 30-day suspended sentence. He said:
    “It was bad, very bad, misconduct on my part”

    I don't know about the significance of 11 May 65.

    Yeah, I was being facetious knowing Cash never did time.
    The "bad boy" image worked well for him but I was genuinely confused about the thread title. ;)

    Somehow I’m pretty sure that typos are the least of your worries.. very good to see you pop in to G-T every now and then.

    I am from Mississippi and I don't know what the fuss is about picking flowers at 2 am. Happens all the time here. Just picked some this morning for Mothers Day.
