For those of you who have been faithful readers of Protester Sans Protest, I have added an additional blog called "Alico Dreams" to represent my own fickle, whimsical, and short-lived dreams of various kinds. That is the purpose of this blog, but as with most blogs, the purpose will probably be short-lived (like most of my other dreams).

Dream #1 - I want to own the Alico Building. The Alico Building presently stands as the largest building in McLennan County at a whopping 22 storeys. It is famous for having withstood the famous 1953 Waco tornado (either the worst or second worst natural disaster in recorded Texas history!), although the honest historian will admit that the tornado destroyed buildings across the street from the Alico Building but did not itself touch the Alico Building. Rumor has it that the building (in all its dizzying height) actually swayed with tornadic winds, but no permanent structural damage was wreaked.

Last November I wandered the Riverwalk of San Antonio and became inspired to push my hometown further than it's been pushed. This past weekend, I drove through Dallas/Fort Worth. (Wright is Wrong!) Let's give peace a chance, eh? Maybe next year Lady Bears.
