Sudan Golden Sparrow

We decided to drive through Waxahachie, TX, a rather infamous city among high energy physicists and residents of Dallas/Fort Worth area.  The carcass of the ill-fated Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) project is located near Waxahachie.

SSC might have served the city had the project not been abandoned.  Aside from the castle-like Ellis County Courthouse, the only other attraction that we could find was a pet store vending a pair of one of my favorite birds: Sudan Golden Sparrows (Passer luteus).
