Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
PS.  If anyone is seriously interesting in the criminal history of the original texas rangers, not the TV ones, check out this historical screed from my friend, pioneer of digital storytelling, Joe Lambert.

During the period of the racist terrorism after the end of Reconstruction it is fair to say the Rangers were Klansmen with badges. Lots of summary executions, assistance with lynchings, lots of extralegal terrorist assualts on African American, Native American and specifically Mexican Americans.  So when you are rooting for Texas, just try thinking Texas Klansmen, and imagine instead of a T for Texas logo, they had a Burning Cross on their hats.  How does that sit?
