Further, once a year I would make each state have a drawing where one teenage boy and one teenage girl were chosen at random to be sent to the capitol where they would join the boy and girl from each of the other states in a fight to the death until only one person remained.

I would also make this fight mandatory viewing.



so speaking of the angola rodeo

Would probably tailgate before the main event.

Would be cool if that had some public lashings as a pre game warm-up.

Meh, I've seen someone die before so I wouldn't be that interested in being there to witness.

I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you picked up on BT's reference.

Yep.

But based on his posting history...

Hence the yes and no.

I am obliged to add that "The Hunger Games" is a cheap rip off of "Battle Royale".

Still, unless the poster's grandfather is REALLY old, he probably didn't attend a public hanging.


He was born in 1890, and lived in a very violent St. Tammany Parish.

Sounds like he saw a lynching, not a judicial hanging.

Yeah. Used to be a big form of entertainment in many communities little over a century ago. Some even had dinner on the grounds and a gospel singing before the "main event". Women and children were even there.

he's not talking about hanging a "colored boy" because he looked the wrong way at a white woman


Thought that was still a hanging offense!

I believe the last PUBLIC hanging was in the 1850s


No, according to documented history there was an attempted one (botched) in Verda at the turn of the century. Close to 10,000 turned out for it.

Documentation was in "The History of Grant Parish"

you were probably the kid who enjoyed burning ants with a magnifying glass.



No, firecrackers on the ant hill was more fun. Magnifying glass was too boring.
