Thread Name: Mexican Music - German Origins?
Subject: RE: Mexican Music - German Origins?
West and north of Austin there is a little town called Fredericksburg that has a lot of German families and activities and restaurants and such. There are a lot of other ethnic communities around Texas, as one would expect.

Hitler was his own creation, I don't think it's fair to compare him to all Germans (and he was from Austria, anyway). It is equally unfair to suggest that Texas is responsible for Dubya's megalomania. As a non-Texan living in Texas I can still speak up for the place. Spread the wealth--it took all 50 states to elect this joker.
