This story helped me feel better about the type of people I'll run into in Texas.
Some of them atheistic socialists in Wisconsin sent a letter to a small Texas town who put up a nativity scene. They demanded it be taken down because it offends them (all the way up in Wisconsin). The county commissioner Joe Hall said:
“We’ll remove it when hell freezes over,” Hall said. “It’s not going to happen.”
I like that guy.
As a side note, our move to Texas is being pushed forward very aggressively. Initially the plan was that I'd go down first and build a cabin so we'd be more comfortable. My wife has announced she's willing to endure the hardships with me in true pioneer spirit and so it looks like we'll all be going down together next week to begin.
We'll be living in an RV for awhile and the first week is going to be brutal while we get water and septic set up. After that life will get a little easier and we'll get started on the attached cabin to give us some dry, secure space to spread out in besides just the RV. I am very thrilled and excited to begin.
