tidbits, fragments, and ephemera is a sometimes substantial but not making any promises glimpse at some information and news related to Generation X in the Deep South.


“Herschel Walker Receives College Football’s Heisman Trophy,” December 4, 1982

Long before he became a late night punchline, this celebrated athlete was winning college football’s greatest honor . . .

from “Hey, Big Wheels, Let’s Make a Deal!” in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, October 13, 1988

(*Disclaimer: Walker may have been a great running back, but please don’t mistake his athletic feats for any capacity to serve in the US Senate.)
