The Day the Texas State Fair Turned Into Burning Man

Big Tex Fire

 I'm a little late commenting on this. Most of you know that Big Tex burned to the ground last week. He died as he lived, with people standing in front of him taking pictures...

If I'm a little tongue and cheek it's just because I've only seen the big guy once, and I don't share the connection that a lot of Texans do to Big Tex.  I know a lot of you grew up seeing Big Tex at the fair and I know he'll be missed.
