Biscuit-Eatin' Barney was in town this afternoon. I wouldn't normally mention this -- heck, danged few people even care to think about him, much less mention him -- only he saw me as I was heading for the shuttle bus over in front of the Salt Palace convention center and much to my dismay he came over to talk to me.
Naturally, the folks I was with moved upwind quite a piece. Seems like Barney was in town because he was tracking "the biggest and god-damnedest critter" he ever found out about. He had picked up the tracks in Pocatello about a week ago and he'd followed 'em clear down to Salt Lake City.
Being a nice sort of chap, I gave him a fiver so he could get some beer, got on the shuttle bus and went back here for a quick pre-drinking bout nap.
I tell you all this because it was just on the news that Barney was in the hospital. Seems he was busy following the tracks when he was run over by the train.
