I was in Austin for the West Virginia vs. Texas football game. I was born and raised in the state of West Virginia and graduated from WVU. I was only in Austin for a very short time but I am very impressed with its beauty. My wife and I are planning a trip there in the future so we can take in more of your wonderful city and also see more of the great state of Texas. While in town, we picked up your Oct. 5 issue. I would like to comment on the article “Hornucopia
” written by Michael Corcoran. In it, he mentions that both schools' bands should duel to the theme from Deliverance
, which is considered a documentary in West Virginia. I would like to know where Mr. Corcoran got his information from. It would be interesting for me to know, because I thought the novel and the movie were set in Georgia. I understand that there are many stereotypes concerning West Virginia which are incorrect. That being said, I did not expect to see this reference in The Austin Chronicle
. West Virginians should be treated with dignity and respect, just as they do the great people who live in Texas. Thank you for your time and we will be in Austin again.
