The Eyes of Texas

Sorry for the blogging interruption. I'm at the annual AAU (Association of American Universities) meeting of Senior Research Officers in Austin, Texas.

UT Austin has a beautiful clock tower just up the street from our hotel. As pretty as it is I couldn't help but think about the 1966 tower sniper (45 casualties in 96 minutes) while walking around the main quad. It's a heartbreaking story.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The Eyes of Texas are upon you,
You can not get away.
Do not think you can escape them
At night or early in the morn
The Eyes of Texas are upon you
'Till Gabriel blows his horn.
