FERRIDAY, La. -- Frankie Lewis Terrell puts down her bottle of whiskey, closes the window to her drive-through liquor store and walks next door to begin the tour of 712 Eighth Ave., the family home that became a museum.Pictures of first cousin Mickey Gilley sit atop a table. The birthing quilt of the first cousin Jimmy Swaggart lies on the very bed where, Frankie claims, the televangelist was "conceived in sin." And then there is the kitsch of big brother Killer: the golf clubs from O.J. Simpson, the Killer's rifles, his baby shoes, and, preserved for posterior uh, posterity: the Killer's potty-training toilet.
