“Big Tex Is Toast” — credit Dallas Morning News writer Eric Aasen for that line from his obituary for the Texas State Fair icon who burned to a crisp in an electrical fire.
I have to wake Mrs. Dreher up and tell her the news. This won’t go over well. Dallasites love their Big Tex. Loved.
Watch this spectator’s video. Tex was immolated in about five minutes. Big Tex died on Obama’s watch. Don’t yew fergit it.
(I kid! I kid!)
