Something You Guys Might Like



There's a movie coming out called "Bernie" starring Jack Black and Matthew McConaughey based upon this fascinating 1998 Texas Monthly article about the murder of a wealthy widow in Carthage, Texas. This month's Texas Monthly has an article (I haven't read yet) about how for over 10 years they've been trying to turn that dark and grisly story into a comedy. They've finally done it.

And if you read the original article, you'll want to visit this site afterwards. It has pictures.

Can't wait to see this.

And, Rick Linklater can dust my bunnies anytime.

The NY Times has an excellent story about how it all happened from a nephew of Marjorie Nugent who has interviewed Bernie in the last couple of years.

My question is....who got her money?

We evacuated from the Beaumont area to Carthage after Hurricane Rita and stayed in an old dorm at Panola Jr College being used as a shelter. One night the college employee who was in charge, asked if he knew about the famous Carthage murder and then told us all about it. When we asked about how anyone could nine months without being missed, all he could say was "Well, you just had to know her."

"Matty Mac" is playing a role in a movie, 5:09. So don't you worry about him - It's called acting.

I don't take kindly to anyone throwing even a hint of disrespect the way of that gorgeous, laid-back, music-lovin, eyes-always-twinkling, Texas man.

Anb BTW, thank you, BG; any picture of of McConaughey is a pick-me-up.
