    I'm not surprised.
    Lots of cool, ancient stuff around here.

    Yeah saw the theory a while back that not only asians but possibly some others were in the mix back east. IIRC

    Q: How do you tell somebody’s from Texas?

    A: Talk to them for 18 seconds - they’ll tell you...

    My understanding is that there are about 20 sites around the US and Central America that have yielded cultural artefacts as far back as 60,000 years. These include a compensated nut in mammoth tusk. (just kidding)

    Other people's claim to "Texas" pre-dates the current folks by 14,000 years?

    Ah, but those people moved over to New Mexico - fair claim!

    Actually, Texans might be the only ones on the planet that would let a New Yorker talk for 18 seconds...

    Go to the Alamo to find out how a certain group of Texans rewrite history. Pathetic in so many ways. Just sayin'

    History is what happened. Written or oral history is the mythology of the culture. The mythology of the indigenous population of Texas, and of Mexico for that matter, is quite different from our own, but no more accurate.

    Central Texas is really rich with prehistoric sites. I used to work at the Wilson-Leonard site near Round Rock.

    Fort Worth might be the only remaining bastion of Old Texas.

    But there's so many new, fast talking people in Texas now - in most parts of the state, you're too late in suggesting this. Fast speech versus slow, is about urban versus rural. There's still huge, amazing parts of New York State with very little population and where nothing much has changed recently, and nobody talks over you.

    What if we made conclusions about New York based on something new, or should we judge Texas based on what one might see in El Paso?

    What you say is so very true in many aspects, but I had never seen such biased history on full display at an historic site like I did at the Alamo. Sponsored by a specific group with a specific agenda. It just doesn't get any more obvious than that. The fact that Texans as a whole don't require a change tells me a lot. Just sayin'
