Spud traveled to
the state of Indiana for the first time in August of 2013. What better
way to celebrate his inaugural visit by touring a museum dedicated to
the life and times of their proud son: John Dillinger; Public Enemy
The museum was located
in a Welcome Center just off the interstate in Hammond, Indiana. What
better way to welcome visitors to your state by memorializing a mass
murderer and bank robber
The museum was jam
packed with interactive exhibits chronicling the life and times of the
notorious gangster and his co-horts. The highlight was seeing Dillinger's
'Death Mask' cast from his face whilst he lay in the morgue, and his
"blood soaked" 'Death Pants' that he wore when G-men gunned
him down back in the 30s. Spud found it curious to see that the blood
has pretty much evaporated over the decades.
Spud was so impressed
he made a noe to himself: "Don't throw away the plaid shirt i was
wearing when I cut myself shaving last week. There's hope for it yet."
death pants planted a troubling desire in the potato to track down other
notorious criminals from the 'dirty thirtys'.
