What's up with Waco?

And whackos?

There's a special corner reserved in Hell for these people.

I knew two people who were involved with this group back in the 80's. They looked into it and asked what I thought.

I told them to run away and never look back. One did join and fled after about two years.

Both of these folks had trouble with reality. One hated Jukeboxes and blamed the downfall of society on the discovery of electricity. The other distrusted everyone and thought that only in a secure world of their own making would they be safe. She was the one that joined up and took off two years later. (If it means anything both of these people were women in their late 20's.)

For what it is worth... Elm Mott is, and has been for at least 60 years, considered the rough/poor part of Waco. It is on the north side of Waco and is a town on its' own. Waco has never shown any desire to annex it.

Before I-35 was built you had to drive through Elm Mott if you were going from Dallas to Austin. It creeped me out just driving through it and I grew up in what was considered one of the roughest and most crime ridden areas of Fort Worth.

Thanks for sharing this link.

Not specific to Waco by any means. Back in the 70s and early 80s, a group called the 'Love Israel Family,' started by a guy who called himself Love Israel attracted a lot of hippie youngsters with a mix of religion and communal living. They went to the Rainbow gatherings which is where I ran into them, in the flesh that is, I'd heard of them for years before.

There was something appealing and repellent about them at the same time. They eventually fell apart owing to the excesses of the top guys. Other hippie communes had problems with sex and teenaged girls as well.
