Just to reinforce the point, by federal law, Texas is the only state in the
nation that is allowed to fly its flag at the same height as the national
flag. No I'm not a native Texican, fact is I didn't move here until 1955.
When were you born? (BTW, the reason for the flag law is that Texas is the
only state that was an independent nation - The Republic of Texas, when it
decided to join the union. All others were colonies, territories, etc.)

It's that sudden stop at the end.
