Jerry Shafer Jordan: Not all Texans drink from the same cup
October 18, 2011
To the Editor:
In reference to “Howdy Pardner … Republic of Texas” (Oct. 7 edition):
I was born in Texas, moved away the first opportunity, and now I find myself residing in Texas once again, purely by a twist of fate. I am retired, as is my wife, and we are doing all in our power to relocate to Grand Lake as soon as possible.
We intend to drop our “Texas Ways,” learn a version of English that is better understood, will be happy to remain citizens of the United States and to become new residents of Grand County (provided Grand County remains Grand County).
While I can attest that there is something in the water here in Texas, I can also attest that not all Texans have drunk from the cup.
