lost highway

Celebrity deaths hold a fascination for many people. In Hollywood you can take a three hour tour of famous death sites. The Internet has pages called "Celebrity Death Sites" and "Where the Stars Died."

One of Knoxville's claims to fame is that Hank Williams spent his last night alive here. He died in the car on his way out of town. Tonight his memory was honored with the third annual "Hank Days" festival. Since Hank died on either New Year's Eve or Day, I don't understand why the festival is in October. The festival includes a Jambalaya cookoff and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry Speed Dating." Maybe we should rename a street after him. Or at least an exit ramp.
