Today marks the 175th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo. There has been a great deal of 'historical revision' in recent years about that most famous event in Texas history. Pretty soon, at the rate things are going, it will be the Texans who had the Mexicans outnumbered. However, the basic facts cannot be changed. Both sides fought with amazing heroism and both had legitimate reasons for their position. With the rise of the politically correct tyranny, even in Texas some things have gotten out of hand. Mexican ethnic pressure groups once forced a baseball team to change their name from "1836" (an odd name for a team anyway) because they deemed the year 1836 "racist" against Mexicans. No, I'm not joking -it is that silly. As for myself, and I would think any honest observer, I can see that both sides had some right on their side and likewise both had their black marks. However, when I look at how I live here and now and then I look at the crime, poverty and constant drug violence in Mexico just a few miles away, I thank God that things worked out the way they did. May the defenders R.I.P.
