Big Tex Burned
Big Tex burned -- leaving only the metal skeleton. It is not yet know what started the fire, but it could have been electrical since the head and mouth are controlled with electricity.
The good news is that State Fair spokesperson Sue Gooding predicts Big Tex will be back on duty when the 2013 State Fair opens. She said, "He'll be back, bigger and better than ever."
NOTE -- The real surprise is that Texas Republicans have not yet blamed President Obama for the burning of Big Tex. But that will probably come. After all, they've blamed him for everything else.
