Gilley Middle School

"Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
They paved over Gilley's and put up a middle school..."
-Joni Wayne Mitchell

I'm not sure whether this counts as a mark of social progress, but the Pasadena (Texas) Independent School District has decided to build a new middle school on the former site of Gilley's, the sprawling Spencer Highway honky-tonk made world-famous in Urban Cowboy. I wonder if they'll teach mechanical bull riding as an elective?
