I'm embarrassed because of how this museum's politically motivated display will reflect Texans and Americans solutions to disagreements.

I'm from a different part of the country where art cars aren't part of the local scene. We don't have parades or exhibits of them. This little museum makes me wish we did. The exhibits change from time to time during the year, so you...More
