Go Texas go 2!!!

Mary Mapes at HuffPo expounds on Texas' sudden possible political relevance. She also makes some great observations about my confusing-as-hell home state:
Texas is not the South. It is not the West. It is not the Southwest.

Texas is all those things, a heady blend of magnolia blossoms and masa harina; a place big enough and complicated enough to treasure both the Alamo and the dreams of millions whose lives began in Mexico. It has memorials to Civil War heroes and civil rights legends, border towns without running water and the latest thing from Barney's.

Texas is home to both big oil and big hair; sometimes to big, oily hair.
Anyway, just read it.
