From Dallas Morning News:
This is beyond messing with Texas
Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst, it seems, isn’t a fan of Texas. He startled a sold-out audience at the Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth by slurring, “I don’t know if you know this, but I hate your fucking state. I’d put a fucking gun to my head before I’d live in your state.” Must have been kidding. Nah. If you went to see him, you weren’t a “normal Texan,” he continued, because “if you were a normal Texan, you’d probably be roping steers and raping Indians.” Pretty strong stuff for a 24-year-old from Nebraska. Go shuck some corn.
