Black out

Lipscomb takes his story to Anglo Amarillo and hopes it plays better than prosecutors'

Of course, that's a trained mind speaking. I like to base my own decisions more on just walking around downtown looking at people. And having done a bit of that up here in the first part of this week, I understand why at least two of Lipscomb's lawyers would rather be almost anywhere but here.

No black people.

But the die is not yet cast. And the world is infinitely complex -- even Amarillo. The ultimate factor is going to be which travels better: the government's case or Al Lipscomb's personality. That smart judge I went to lunch with in Dallas before coming up here said anybody who doesn't believe Al Lipscomb can charm a West Texan "doesn't know Mr. Lipscomb."
