Oh yeah...it's for real.

This is the town of my birth. Unfortunately the hospital where I was born is now an old folks home, but in a strange way, I guess there is some kind of symmetry to all that. At first glance the town seems charming--and for the most part, it is...if you don't stay too long.

Never mess with the locals, though. This is also the birth (and death) place of infamous spree-killer Charles Starkweather. In case you're interested, his grave is located in Wyuka Cemetery near 40th & O Street. Just stop by the office, and they'll tell you where to find his burial site.

had Andy Warhol visited Nebraska...

perhaps he'd have created this image. but he didn't, so I did.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the air is fresh and clean, and traffic is scarce
  • Cons:after all is said and done, it's still Lincoln.
  • In a nutshell:"...ya-a-a-a-a-awn."

    I wish I had a few more days there. It was a fun trip. I'll have to go again in another year. I just wish Nebraska would have found another day to execute him besides my birthday. :-(

    I would like to send you a picture of the Sower that you might like. It is real. I took it myself. I live here.

    You're right about the locals. The only place I've been mugged is Lincoln Nebraska.
