    Back at ya KT and to everyone else.

    I am so proud to be from the Greatest State in the Greatest Country in the World. Now I want to go back and read the "What's great about Texas thread".

    So tonight I will have a Lone Star, listen to Willie, and share with my daughter some more of her history and why she should be proud. (as if she doesn't hear it all of the time anyway. )

    This is how my family ended up in the great state of TEXAS - my 4th great grandfather fought at San Jacinto against the evil Santa Ana and we just never left! We even have a street named for us!

    Anyway, Happy Independence Day - I feel like I should be going down to the San Jac monument and rub his name or something (it's on a plaque down there). This is the 170th anniversary!

    My deep thanks to the Republic of Texas for chartering Baylor in 1845, making my school older than yours, no matter where you went! (In Texas, that is. )

    Tigerjag are you at baylor right now or an alum. I actually walked by the charter sign today in front of the SUB and refelected on how much old history Texas has got. Its so funny to see people from other states when one mentions a middle school Texas history course, makes me proud to be from the Lone Star.

    May the Dallas Mavericks overthrow that tyranny we call the San Antonio Spurs on Texas Independence Day. It's going to be like the Battle of the Alamo all over again!

    So that was like when 1888? I think my current tuition without all my scholarship crap is around 30,000 a semester.
