GTT – a new chapter is being written


One of the phrases that I recall from Mississippi history class, all those years ago, was the phrase “Gone to Texas.” In the era known as “Reconstruction,” thousands of Mississippians migrated to Texas for a new beginning, often leaving the letters “GTT” scrawled on the door of their abandoned homes.

Steve Campbell, writing in the Star-Telegram, tells of the newest wave headed for the Lone Star State…

Across the nation, unemployment is sky-high, the housing market is sucking wind and recessionary fears have frozen Americans in place.

Just don’t tell that to a stream of new residents who are “voting with their feet” that Texas is the safest place to ride out the storm and the place to be when the economy recovers.

Even in the midst of a recession, economists, demographers and relocation experts believe the Lone Star State is on the cusp of becoming The New California.

Or maybe it already is..

Or as Chris Rea would say, …. She said, “What?” I said, “Texas!”

  1. Well, things ain’t as bad as some places, but it certainly isn’t the land of milk and honey, as Cali was described to the Joad family.

  2. Milk ‘n honey? We don’ want no steenkin’ milk and honey. How ’bout tequila and refried beans?
