What's Next?

Well we now have yet another official Texas item. We all know that the Mockingbird is the state bird and the Bluebonnet is the official state flower. Now our wonderful legislature has voted to name the Blue Lacy as the official state dog. I have nothing against dogs. I love dogs. But come on... I thought it was nuts when our politicos voted the dutch oven the official utensil of Texas. Now we have an official dog. Meanwhile the school funding bill goes nowhere.Why dont they vote for an official Texas worm? Our elected officials never cease to amaze me. They could be debating and planning how to help our state by solving serious issues like school finance, but at least we have an offical state dog. What is the official state cat? What will they think of next?
