    1873 - The Texas legislature declared the existence of Wegefarth County. It was organized and was suppressed when the legislature created the current Panhandle counties in 1876.

    1875 - The Comanche surrendered to U.S. troops at Fort Sill. The event ended the Red River War and opened the Texas Panhandle to settlers.

    1993 - Ronald Ray Howard's murder trial began in Austin, TX. Howard killed a state trooper after listening to Tupac Shakur's "2Pacalypse Now" album. Howard was convicted and sentenced to death.

    2007 - In Austin, TX, Prince played with Grupo Fantasma at The Belmont. He was reportedly paid $1 million for performing 6 songs. (Now there is a total waste of good cash)
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Funny how I never heard about this. However, Judas Priest was taken to court because some kids allegedly killed themselves after listening to their music.
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
