An Anniversary

tomorrow is the anniversary of the Battle of San Jancinto, in which Texas won its fight for independence from Mexico. There are some in the Hispanic community (such as those who deomnstrated in LA a couple of weeks ago) who would like to reverse the results of that decision. To them and their like I say, "come and take it!"

(The flag and the saying actually refer to the beginning of Texan resistance to Mexico, not the end, at Gonzales, 2 Oct 1835, when the Mexicans under Santa Anna tried to disarm a small militia of Texans who were defending a cannon left in Gonzales years previously. The whole affair involved about 100 people and was about as dangerous as Jimmy Carter's rural encounter with the Wererabbit, but you get the idea.....)
