  •  West Texas - without the Comma . . . (10+ / 0-)

    Maybe just as bad!  West Texas is anti-US, anti- Obama, ant-Democratic.  They are still proud that George Bush is from Midland, Texas - both of them!

    At one time, when I was a kid, oil company people served on school boards and built unbelievable schools, recruited great teachers, and thought that education was important.  Now, it seems that ignorance has taken over and the Bible is the only history book that matters.  Even the geologists kids think that the world is only 6,000 years old!

    •  Midland is not in West Texas....they are stuck in (1+ / 0-)

      between the panhandle and West Texas.  Midland is a country unto itself.  West Texas comprises the Big Bend, the Rio Grande, the Chihuahuan Desert and the largest city is El Paso.  

      Midland/Odessa is the same as Abilene, Sweetwater..not West Texas, a time warp stuck between two areas of Texas.

        Permian Basin. But it's still in west Texas. So are Lubbock and Amarillo, even if Amarillo says it's High Plains and Lubbock says it's South Plains.
