In answer to question 1, my friends and I growing up in South and Central

13, who grew up in Austin, know nothing of King's x. The 13 year-old says
"time out" or "times," meaning roughly what King's x did. I don't know if
King's x survives in rural areas in Texas, but it I don't think it is
common in cities in Texas, and may be gone altogether.
I have no info on question 2 and 3.
The only Kings X I know is a band that just happens to be from Texas;
perhaps there's a connection somewhere.
