B.S. and Fast Facts

five gallons of regular and a quart of Pennzoil
led to a conversation with an attendant at a DX
service station about Gene LeRoy Hart
and Indians in general.

I asked,
"Isn't it incredible that the whole city
of Tulsa was once part of an entire Creek

with a loaded gas nozzle in his right hand
he looked up and told me:

"That's bullshit. This station's been here
for years."
