Twice this month I’ve spelled “cigar” with an “S.” Nice ring, huh?

I’m sure Richard Overton would agree. Next time I’m in Austin (invariably discussing conspiracy truths with AJ) I may have to ask him about it. On the porch. At the house on Richard Overton Avenue.

I covered Mr. Overton, America’s oldest veteran, in June. He’s still 111 years old. Still in the same house. Still smoking 12 cigars a day. One might explain the others. He just got AC for the first time – probably related to maintaining 70/70 more than his own comfort. He doesn’t need it on the porch.
