TODAY IS TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY, and the original 175-year-old handwritten document proclaiming our independence from Mexico will be displayed in the Texas Senate at 11 a.m. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst will introduce the document and the re-enactor color guard. I will be among the five senators who will read a section of it during a very special observance. Another four will read the names of the “signers.”
Historians believe that the original document and five copies were made and signed. Only the original survives. It will be displayed at the Texas Archives and Library in Austin throughout March.

Umm… yeeeeah… maybe the cultural/history part of the mission flies. To each their own.
