La Salle County, Texas

La Salle County is a county in Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 6,886, its county seat is Cotulla. The county was created in 1858 and organized in 1880, it is named for a 17th-century French explorer. The area of present-day La Salle County was occupied by the Coahuiltecan Indians until the 18th century, when they were squeezed out by the Spanish from the south and the Apache from the north. After the Mexican War of Independence, the Mexican government used land grants to encourage settlement, but few settled in the area. By 1836, the area was populated by Indians. Between the Texas Revolution and the Mexican War the area of present-day La Salle County lay in the disputed area between the Rio Grande and the Nueces River. Desperadoes ruled the area, as neither the Mexican government nor the Republic of Texas could gain control; the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo assigned the Nueces Strip to Texas in 1848, but outlaws and hostile Indians delayed settlement of the area. La Salle County was formed in 1858 from the Bexar District.

The first settlements were established on the road from Laredo to San Antonio. In 1852, the Army established Fort Ewell near present-day Artesia Wells where the road crossed the Nueces River to protect travelers on the road; the fort was abandoned in 1854, the remaining inhabitants moved to the settlement of Guajoco, located one and a half miles from the fort. By 1871, around 60 people lived in Guajoco of Mexican descent. In 1856, William A. Waugh of Ohio established a ranch where the San Antonio–Laredo road crossed Cibolo Creek, his ranch headquarters became a stopping point for travelers and in 1879, a post office was established there with the name Waugh's Rancho. Iuka, an early settlement located 8 miles west of present-day Cotulla, was established in 1868 by several families and served as a stage stop and marketplace for cattle-buyers; the settlement established a post office in 1880. In 1870, the population of La Salle County was 69, by 1880 it was 789. La Salle County was formally organized in 1880 and Stuart's Rancho, near Guajoco, was designated the county seat.

In the early 1880s, the International-Great Northern Railroad laid tracks to the county. Around this time, outlaws were eliminated from the area, the last Indian raid happened in 1878; these changes help bring stability to the county. With the arrival of the railroads, settlements such as Iuka and Guajoco were abandoned as inhabitants moved near the railroad tracks. Polish immigrant Joseph Cotulla arrived in La Salle County in 1868 and established a large ranching operation. In 1881, Cotulla donated 120 acres of his land to the railroad for the townsite of Cotulla, the railroad built a depot there in 1882. While Cotulla continued to develop his town, Iuka's postmaster, Jesse Laxton, developed a townsite just across the tracks named La Salle. La Salle was granted a post office in 1881, in 1882, was designated the temporary county seat. However, Cotulla became the county seat by special election in 1883. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,494 square miles, of which 7.5 square miles is land and 7.5 square miles is water.

Monkey Dust

Monkey Dust is a British satirical cartoon, characterised by dark humour and handling of taboo topics such as bestiality, murder and paedophilia. Three series were broadcast on BBC Three between 2003 and 2005. Following co-creator Harry Thompson's death, no further series were made; each episode featured animation by several different companies including Slinky Pictures, Nexus Productions, Sherbet Animation, Caroline Mabey, Picasso Pictures, VooDooDog, but is linked by recurring themes/jokes and seamless transitions between sketches. The episodes are untitled but instead are known by the characters introduced or the one-off sketches included; the principal writers and creators of the series were Harry Thompson and Shaun Pye, although other contributors were responsible for a significant proportion of the work. A short overview of the main characters, called a nocturne, set in the various characters' bedrooms with no dialogue and a depressing accompanying song precedes the final section; the animation in each episode is accompanied by contemporary music which helps the transition between scenes.

Numerous songs by Goldfrapp, Boards of Canada and Black Box Recorder. The theme music for all three series is by Eels; the inclusion of music from Goldfrapp during the first series would have pre-dated the commercial release of their debut album, but production on the series took so long that by the time of airing, Goldfrapp were about to release their second album. Thompson and Pye comment on this in the Series 1 DVD commentary. Hicham Bensassi contributed a song he wrote and produced in collaboration with singer Rosamund Daegenhardt, it appeared in series 3, episode 6. On 8 November 2004, the first series of Monkey Dust was released in the UK on DVD. Several musical substitutions had to be made from the television airing, as artists such as Cliff Richard and David Gray would not allow their work to be used on the DVD. Cover versions of the original songs were used instead; the second and third series were broadcast on BBC Three respectively. Only the first series of Monkey Dust was commercially released on DVD, however, in September 2009 eight episodes from across series 2 and 3 were made available for download from iTunes, though these are no longer available.

Another reason for the lack of DVD releases of the series is thought to be the'teenage jihadi' sketches being unsuitable in the wake of the 7 July 2005 London bombings that occurred a few months later. In 2003, The Observer listed Harry Thompson as one of the 50 funniest or most influential people in British comedy, citing Monkey Dust as evidence and calling it: "the most subversive show on television; the topical animated series is dark and unafraid to tackle taboo subjects such as paedophilia, taking us to Cruel Britannia, a creepy place where the public are hoodwinked by arrogant politicians and celebrities. This edgy show doesn't always work, but when it does there is nothing quite like it", it has received positive reviews from Digital Spy. 2003: International Student Jury Award 2004: Best Multichannel Programme 2004: Best Comedy Monk, Claire.
