"THERE IS THE ALAMO," SAID THE PROUD TEXAN TO HIS FRIEND
FROM BOSTON. "THAT RUIN IS WHERE ONLY 136 TEXANS HELD OFF
15,000 OF SANTA ANA'S ARMY FOR FOUR DAYS. DID YOU EVER
HAVE ANY HEROES LIKE THAT IN MASSACHUSETTS?" "WELL, I
SHOULD SAY WE DID!" ANSWERED THE BOSTONIAN. "WE HAD PAUL
REVERE, FOR EXAMPLE." "PAUL REVERE!" SNORTED THE TEXAN.
"DO YOU MEAN THAT FELLOW WHO HAD TO RIDE TO GET HELP?"
