Kinky Friedman: Livin’ Large in the Lone Star State

” … if getting to the point is the determinant of whether or not you’re crazy, then half the world’s crazy. Unfortunately, it’s the wrong half.

           Texas singer/songwriter/author/politician Kinky Friedman

Mr. Friedman is the composer of such deathless alt/country ditties as “Get Your Biscuits in the Oven (And Your Buns in the Bed)” and “You May Have Been Born and Bred in Old Kentucky (But You’re Just A Crumb Down Here)”

He is also the author of several mystery novels and a failed candidate for governor of Texas.
