    With all the off-the-record stuff "Pappy" likely knew about Bruton, it'd have taken a special section to run it all ... :D

    If you've ever had an opportunity to stand on the starting line when two Top Fuel cars launch, it's literally breathtaking. If you've ever had the opportunity when four do it, it's something you'll never forget.

    Which is a weirder and more noteworthy claim to fame:
    having the name Ollen Bruton given to you at birth, or being
    called Humpy because "See, guys, that's what they called Dad!" ???

    Dismal threadjack, yes, but remember when all of us in the newsroom got excited when we could turn some breaking-news item into a special section? ... And then, oh holy shit, how we were climbing over each other to get those overtime hours!?! Holy shit!
