Reno is so close to hell you can see Sparks
I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When someone trades Scott Podsednik, it's kinda like they are saying, "Here, you throw this away."
Because "I shot a man in Grass Valley" just wouldn't have the same flow.
Cash had probably never been west of the Rio Grande when he wrote Folsom Prison Blues - maybe he thought Reno was in California? He had been to San Antonio - so why would he think there was a train that ran past Folsom "down to San Antone"?
Technically there are places in California named San Antonio
Cash was inspired to write this song after seeing the movie Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison (1951) while serving in West Germany in the United States Air Force. Cash recounted how he came up with the "Reno" line: "I sat with my pen in my hand, trying to think up the worst reason a person could have for killing another person, and that's what came to mind."
I saw a guy with a Podsednik 2005 World Series ChiSox jersey outside my liquor store a couple days ago, hustling for beer money. "Give me a dollar for and I'll split a beer with you!" quoth Pods. Grinding as usual.
Reno ends at the CA state line. If Cash was in CA when he fired the shot and it hit the aforementioned man while the man stood in NV, wouldn't Cash be under CA jurisdiction?
Wasn't the Aaron Burr/Alexander Hamilton duel deliberately fought this way so that neither protagonist could be prosecuted for murder in case one man died?
No, their duel was in Weehawken, which is across the Hudson from Manhattan.
"I've Been Everywhere," which when originally written referenced a long sequence of towns and places in Australia.
Precisely, and which way did the body fall?
I'll say it: So tired of Johnny Cash.
I'll see you, and raise you one So tired of Roy Orbison.
But where did they bury the survivors?
I'm not tired of Johnny Cash at all. His music is still incredible. But the cult of Johnny Cash gets pretty tiresome.
To be fair, what cult doesn't get tiresome after awhile?
According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Podsednik was granted his release after refusing an assignment to Triple-A Reno
