Guides to Texas

They say everything's big in Texas. You know how it is: Sashay on over for a Texas-sized this, or belly up for a Texas-sized that. The implication is that "this" or "that" is usually generous, often spicy (literally and figuratively), and almost always tall (again, get that imagination working for you). The expression, "That's a mighty tall order," can only have come from Texas, and refers alternately to what you might want from a restaurant menu to asking John Wayne to rescue your grandmother from an evil Snidley Whiplash. Whatever the task, Texans will usually feel up to it.

Witness the growth of Texas cities in the past century or so, since Texans have been up to building them: Houston, once a blotch in an oil field, now boasts an impressive downtown skyline and one of the most thriving arts communities in the country; Dallas-historically the seat of Texas culture and refinement, that too having its own Texas imprint-continues to be a leader in attracting the country's best and brightest minds to its businesses, cultural institutions, and media organizations (so that even non-Texans can be honorary Texans); and Austin, always a bit "off" by Texas standards, is fast becoming the southwest's answer to Seattle for its easy lifestyle and new music scene. Whatever your pleasure, Texas is probably up to the task.
