A couple of the Patriot Guard Riders crashed along the route, no info is yet out on the extent of their injuries. Hopefully they are minor.

I have friends who live up and down the I-35 corrider from Dallas to Austin. The various pictures and videos they have posted on FB are inspiring. One of my proudest days of being a Texan.

My wife and I drove down to Austin from N. Texas last night and we kept seeing signs about a funeral procession on I35 and we could not figure what if meant. Now we know.

Any body know how to get this big lump from my throat?
