West to East, Texas measures 773[4] miles (1,244 km) and North to South, 790 miles (1,270 km). A long drive if you are determined to cover the whole state.

Jury selection is not always based on those who answer with truth and frankness.

Frankness may at times, be mistaken for egoism.

Egoism is know to be a direct cause of swollen heads.
