Was that post "disappeared" or am I really goin' nuts?

I'm a HUGE fan of Brother Bill's from all the way back to the 70s...he IS a Texas Boy, after all...he was a HUGE influence on my thought processes at the time, and he left his mark. The news that he had died hit me hard. My last memory of him was getting to talk to him via phone as the "last caller" on what ended up being his last appearance on a local Austin "community TV" talk show. I'd have to venture a guess that Alex Jones prolly wouldn't have "happened" had it NOT been for Bill Hicks, so I don't think you were too off base...not by a long shot! Bill HIcks, just by the very act of BEING "Bill Hicks," gave countless repressed Texans the "permission" they needed to think for themselves for the first time! When I discovered Brother Bill, I felt an incredible sense of "Whew...I ain't the only one, after all!"
