OPINION: Lone Star pride stands alone

This story was corrected from the misprint in the 03/02/06 issue online only on 03/03/06.I was born in New Orleans.

I can cook jambalaya (nearly) from memory, understand the Cajun-French my grandmother peppers her speech with, dance like a crazy person, be a complete snob about what actually qualifies as "Mardi Gras" (hint: if it's outside of New Orleans, it does not), and have extremely high standards for seafood and Cajun cooking outside of Louisiana.

But my family moved to Texas 11 years ago and I like to think my world became a little brighter.

Ask females for fashion advice

All right, I have a confession to make. I like frat-daddy clothing. Honestly, the boat shoes, the khaki shorts, the Polos - minus the popped-collar (read: misguided fad) - I love it all. Now, look down. If you are currently sporting clothing similar to this, you can kindly stop reading; this won't apply to you ... today. For the rest of you, take a seat, continue reading and please, try not to let me hurt your feelings.
