George, wash out yur mouth. For shame. I'm a Texian and I am definitely a 
Southroner, since my folks got to Texas via Lousyanna at the close of the 
Late Unpleasantness. Texians from Tyler down to Corpus all consider 
themselves Southroners. It's them Texians from the Panhandle and such 
places that may be passin' so to speak. And then there are the folk from 
Midland headed to El Paso....them's is the westerners. Still, they is 
western Southroners in my book <bg>
