The Stars At Night... Are Big And Bright!

(Clap Clap Clap Clap) Deep in the Nation of Texas!

You may have read this week that Texas Governor Rick Perry has hinted that his state could choose to secede rather than succumb to a higher tax burden. Well, according to the U.S. State Department, Texas has already flown the coop! We get more from the "In The Loop" column in the Washington Post:

Breaking news! In the Loop Exclusive! Texas has once again become an independent country! The State Department, listing the countries Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has visited and the frequent-flier miles she's piled up (more than 50,000 so far), notes that she's taken trips to Europe, the Netherlands, Mexico, the Middle East, Asia and Texas.

The site provides a breakdown of "trips by country" and includes Texas along with France, Germany, Japan, China and so on. Clinton's trip to Texas on March 27 did not involve international diplomacy -- there was a speech at a Dallas women's forum and a stop in Houston to pick up an award.

Frankly - I don't care if Texas secedes or not - I just wonder if foreign countries like Texas should be eligible to take part in the NFL draft. Take THAT, you no-account Cowboys!
