That being said, what sort of rail do you think our buddy deano would be riding on? Frozen manzanita sounds too good for the guy.Be glad to. .
......in the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries an offender was made to straddle a fence rail held on the shoulders of two or more bearers. The subject was then paraded around town or taken to the city limits and dumped by the roadside.....
Now there's a story that story Abraham Lincoln has him quoting a victim of being ridden out of town on a rail as having said, "If it weren't for the honor of the thing, I'd just as soon it happened to someone else."
But in the olden days, high quality rails were only imported from England and only the fancy dancy mobs in Boston and New York could afford them. If you were from Texas and had a cheap mob after you, you'd be lucky to get a frozen Manzanita bush to ride on. And one more time.....it wasn't to the edge of town. It was whatever them cxcksuckers wanted to dump you.
Hefty dudes made it the horse corral...if they were lucky.
Did I ever rail against this act? Yes, I did. Just not in public.
