Go Texas!

Sometimes Texas gets a bad rap. So does New Jersey, right? But I had a great time while I lived there briefly, and it really went to show that interstate trash talk is as much a part of the American tradition as sports team rivalries. I was also suprised to see so many NJ plates on huge pickup trucks driven by people with mullets (though mullet-wearing volvo drivers didn't surprise me). Stereotypes are easily misplaced.

Still, things like this bother me about Texas, because the average outsider assumes it is commonplace. I was told many times in New Jersey that I didn't seem like I was from Texas at all, and they meant it as a compliment.
