Of course, the biggest misconception is that all of us still ride horses to work and carry six shooters. I've only ridden a horse once in my life, but I'm OK letting the local pick-pockets wonder about the six-shooter thing. Most of the time, the local populace isn't anti-Texan at all, leading me to believe that this is a unique trait of the ruling class and media types, constantly trying to drum up controversy.
Of all the Texas symbolism that I've seen in my (admittedly limited) travels the most prominent is the Texas Steakhouse. Almost every city has a place advertising itself as such, yet I've never been compelled to photograph one. Odd.
