One of my friends just moved to a town called Wylie. I don't understand why the high school mascots aren't the Coyotes. (It took my friend about a week to get that. *beepbeep* )

Truth And Consequences, NM. Used to be called Hot Springs but they changed it in 1950 after a radio show held a contest.
