" It was part of the Texas ritual. We're rich as son-of-a-bitch stew but look how homely we are, just as plain-folksy as Grandpappy back in 1836. We know about champagne and caviar but we talk hog and hominy."
"-- Edna Ferber"
" I am delighted to be here with you this evening because after listening to George Bush all these years, I figured you needed to hear what a real Texas accent sounds like."
"-- Ann Richards"
