WINNING & LOSING THE AUSTIN POWER GAME

ven though he is standing in the shadows of a South Austin beer joint, Billy Wayne Clay-ton’s gold-covered teeth are glimmering, casting a reflec-tion that seems as bright as a sunrise. The searchlight effect of Clayton’s dental work is due not so much to the number of gold-capped teeth he has, but to the way he displays them. Tonight, Billy Clayton is smiling a lot. “Oh yes, Dallas,” he says as we are in-troduced. “Real nice town. Glad you came down to see us.”
