Burger Fan Honored In Longview

  An East Texas man has reached "Hall Of Fame" status for his allegiance to tiny hamburgers. 64 year old "Philip Tidwell" of Avinger was inducted today in the "Krystal Lovers Hall Of Fame." Tidwell wrote Krystal Hamburgers of Longview telling them how, in the past, he regularly made trips to Mississippi to get their burgers. 
  He says his favorite meal is 3 Krystal burgers and a bowl of chili.  Now, Krystals will put Tidwell's likeness on its burger packages, and give him a permanent plaque to honor his loyalty to their hamburgers. Tidwell never thought it would get this far.
  "I wrote the story about my association with Krystal to get a t-shirt and to get a free Krystal on opening day and this is where its led to, I hope there are no consequences to this... I think I've paid all my debts" said Tidwell.
