Kids, I am one of those people whose Netflix queue looks like either the most boring or the most violent in the history of mankind.  My boyfriend complains that it seems like all I'm interested in are long, somewhat morbid documentaries about World War II, World War I, Nazis, the Civil War, bombs and Mythbusters.  Well, I can't help it!  I love history.  I love all kinds of stuff like that.  So it is the kind of thing I'm definitely excited about looking into on a local level.  And you can do that anytime with the Katy Depot.
