“My mother renamed herself
The Republic of Texas, unfurled her flag all the way
into the 1980′s, when the Republic kidnapped her neighbors,
Joe and Margaret Rowe, to highlight abuses she’d suffered.
My mother was an American terrorist.”

-James Allen Hall from “Portrait of my Mother as the Republic of Texas”
