 "The folks in Mississippi are saying, 'Thank God for Texas.' " 
-Kinky Friedman.  (Richard S. "Kinky" Friedman (1944 - ), American singer, songwriter, novelist, humorist, politician and former columnist for Texas Monthly who styles himself in the mold of popular American satirists Will Rogers and Mark Twain.)

 "I want to be a Texan 24 hours a day." -James Dean  (James Byron Dean (1931 - 1955), American film actor and cultural icon, who died at age 24 in a tragic car accident.  Best embodied by the title of his most celebrated film, "Rebel Without a Cause" (1955). NOTE:  I've heard a lot about that movie.  But I don''t remember watching it.  I remember Mr. Dean from the movie "Giant" with Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor.)


Mr. Dean is pictured below sandwiched between Marilyn Monroe and Bruce Lee.
