It's just funny to think about the way Texas is laid out... D/FW and anywhere north of it is "North Texas". Anything east of D/FW is east Texas. Anything west of it is considered west Texas. Even though "west Texas" is about twice as big as east Texas.

My bet is it was drawn out by a meteorologist... <- Since we all know they're not right about anything .

Software QA. I worked for HQ SAC back then, evaluating Boeing's work on the B-1B Flight Simulator software. 3907th SES. This was back in the early 90s.

What do you do?

The confusion is due to Ft Worth's "Where the West begins" title.
Western United States, yes. West Texas, no.

according to "traditional" texas geography, it's west of the cross timbers, and isn't also on the LLano Estacado too? that would make it "west texas." if I were pressed for why I think it's in west texas, id say for 2 reasons: it sees regular dust storms, and it has an old timey country song named after it.

Give me a dollar.

dummy! "fuck" has four letters, not five, and it's, "shithole," not, "SHIT whole." also, hang up the asterisks, this isn't punk ass LS1.com. now, you might want to reconsider bad mouthin' texas like that, or else you might be walkin' down the street with three shoes. . .
