Care To Split A Lone Star?

The Cowboy knows Texas.  What self-respecting cowboy doesn’t.

The Cowboy has speculated among friends about the prospect of El Paso County seceding from the state of Texas to join New Mexico.  It would make El Paso, often an afterthought 700 miles away from Dallas and in a different time zone from every other major city in Texas, into the largest city in a state with which it has much more in common, including a time zone.

Nate does the Cowboy one better, and analyzes Texas’ strategic options.  It’s thorough, interesting and very amusing.  That’s a winning combination for the Cowboy.  Of course, Texas is a winning combination too.

Now, don’t you wish you were from Texas?
