First Post

I was having a discussion about how Terre Haute is a weird place, full of crackheads, rednecks and want-to-be thugs, and it sort of hit me: This place is stranger than fiction.

So, I decided to start a blog to chronicle the sometimes-trashy, always bizarre, uniquely Mid-Western city, known as Terre Haute, IN.



  1. The place IS stranger than fiction... I was actually reminded of the Haute when I saw a belligerently intoxicated man attempting to ride a bicycle with flat tires a couple of weeks ago. He asked to use my air compressor, so I let him. He kept accusing the air stems of being broken, but was too drunk to notice there were cuts all around the tire from riding on the rim, and air was going every which direction.

  2. It really is.

    I've just had to make everything into a bit for a stand up act in order to cope with living here.
