Judging from the Gee Whiz chatter on Facebook, I guess we ought to think about canonizing our mayor. If sainthood is a bit of a stretch, perhaps we can think about a 62 foot high statue on I-30. Ole Sam Houston has a 60 foot high statue on I-45, down by Huntsville. We ought to be able to beat that. Besides that, Ole Sam didn't have any of these pesky Dallas suburbs to contend with. He got by easy. Tell me what Ole Sam Houston ever did for Rowlett. Nothin', I tell you. An' another thing........did Ole Sam ever send anyone Weather Service weather reports and 50 pictures a day on Facebook? It's hard work, but we have an able bodied Mayor Pro Tem that is equally qualified to keep the mayor's back covered and keep us informed.
Shoot, we already know how to finance it. We're getting good at bond issues. Yee Haw!!
