Today's Blind Items - The Sundown Town

This A list dual threat actor has a history of owning towns way back in his past. Well, owning towns adjacent. A couple of years ago he was at an event with the celebrity CEO and this foreign born A list mostly movie actress who is an Oscar winner/nominee with whom she shares a long history with the celebrity CEO. They have hooked up a few times, but it was party/recreationally based. The CEO and the actress were discussing buying towns. The trick was not to buy some old ghost town just to say you owned a town. Instead, you had to buy one that had a designation that would allow it to have its own police force. Even if the town only had a handful of residents, you wanted a police force that could write tickets all day and night. So, you also were looking for some town that had a road that connected interstates or the like running through it or a town that had a gas station not far from an interstate. Well, the actor took their suggestions to heart, and despite his progressive leanings, he ended up purchasing a town with a few hundred residents and had several roads and highways leading to and from an interstate. It is also a notorious sundown town. The actor had to hire a police force and he brought in several police who actually worked in the town when it could afford a police department. A more brutal bunch you can't even imagine, but our actor makes a six figure a month profit from all the tickets written in the town.
