Texas newest state to have non-white majority

From AP:
According to the population estimates based on the 2000 Census, about 50.2 percent of Texans are now minorities. In the 2000 Census, minorities made up about 47 percent of the population in the second-largest state.
I figure that makes EVERYONE in Texas a minority. Of course, the smallest minority in Texas is made up of people who get five weeks of vacation, and who are stupid enough to take that vacation in central Texas in August.

You know, Crawford isn't far from Waco. What would happen if we told the FBI and the ATF that there are a bunch of heavily-armed religious fanatics holed up in a ranch there? Crawford's not far from Fort Hood, the nation's largest army base (except Iraq), either. Maybe we should tip off a local recruiter that there's an "exceptionally fit" guy just down the road clearing brush who still owes a couple of years on his military obligation. Seems to support the war and likes to dress up like he's a soldier--gotta couple of young daughters, too!
