As some readers may have noted, Letters From Texas, Consumer Protection Division, has long been skeptical of claims made in the Big Bend town of Marfa, Texas, regarding the mysterious “Marfa lights.”
To uncover the truth, a crack team of investigative reporters, cooperating in a (not particularly) limited partnership between Letters From Texas and MeanRachel.com infiltrated Presidio County, carrying with us special state-of-the-art SuperDopplerMega3DNightVisionCam equipment especially designed by the Letters From Texas Research and Development Laboratories to expose this fraud.
After a brief delay in the neighboring Brewster County town of Marathon, during which the team was hindered for 2 days in tequila-related incidents hardly worth mentioning at all, we arrived at the Marfa Lights viewing area. Our research quickly revealed that the land for this viewing area had been donated by none other than the former Republican nominee for Texas Governor, Clayton Williams.
Determined not to relax and enjoy it, we quickly set up our highly sophisticated SuperDopplerMega3DNightVisionCam. It didn’t take long to expose this for the fraud that it is. Countless tourists have visited this site from coast to coast for generations, all taken in, duped if you will, by the complicated hoax. Through the use of our sophisticated SuperDopplerMega3DNightVisionCam, the crack investigative team can now expose for the first time the true source of the Marfa light:
There is no word yet on whether area State Senator Carlos Uresti or local State Representative Pete Gallego intend to convene legislative hearings on this disturbing matter, but we will let you know just as soon as they stop hanging up on us. There has been no sign of Congressman Ciro Rodriguez on this, although several 4×8 Ciro Rodriguez signs were spotted South of Marfa, between Presidio and Ruidosa, left over from the last election.
We will update this breaking news as events warrant. Meanwhile, this has been your Letters From Texas/MeanRachel.com investigative report.
