Lived there for over 30 years, never seen a city filled with so many rude and ignorant people. The highlight of the town (if you can call it that) is the Walmart, filled with the dregs of society. If you like used car lots, run down hotels, questionable Mexican restaurants, or McDonald's, it's the place for you! You can leave your turn signals at home, they don't use them there.

There's a new bypass that lets you go around the town now. It's great.
