Regional generalizations are common with respect to various parts of the United States, but it is about Texas that they are perpetuated in greatest profusion. In that state, it has been irreverently remarked, one can "look farther and see less" than anywhere else in the nation. This delightful generalization is but one of myriad that have been composed about our erstwhile-largest state. Indeed, the folklore and autochthonous mythology of this country would be much the sparser were it not for the congeries of cliches concocted concerning Texas.
