Lots of my friends here are red-state voters who come from coastal blue states. They sort of can't figure out why I want our next duty station to be Texas. Lo and behold, Vinod says it better than I could. A blog post in praise of Texas that includes references to 1) Lila and 2) groking: could it get any cooler than that?

Texas IS the promised land and we are even tolerant of foreigners. Unfortunantly, it has been my experience that when you WANT to go somewhere Uncle Sugar sends you someplace else the freakin' wasteland of New England...Good luck with that:}

Sarah, y'all would be more than welcome to move to Texas. One problem, though. If you move here, I'll need to change my blog name to "TexasSecondBestGrok."

I loved the linked article; says what I've long thought about Texas.

You (y'all) would certainly be welcome here in Texas! Fort Hood I'm guessing?

The state tourism board ran a campaign with the slogan "Texas: It's like a whole other country", I think that sums up the way a lot of us feel. In a good way.
