If you’ve ever met a Texan, you know we’re never at a loss to talk about Texas. And nothing means more to most Texans than the State Flag of Texas. Heck, that Cody guy from Survivor chose the State Flag of Texas as his luxury item.
Tonight I’m proud and more than a little touched to tell our troops that all six historic flags of Texas have been lowered and replaced with six US flags at the Six Flags over Texas park here.
I have no idea if this means anything at all to those of you outside of Texas. But for me, on a night when Iraq holds at least seven POWs (all of them from bases in Texas), I’m really, really proud to be a Texan and I’m really, really proud to be an American.
