I won’t go into any of the crass names that Fort Worth has been called, even by Texans (maybe, especially by Texans). But I truly doubt the Stock Yard Museum’s claim to an antique light bulb that’s been burning since September, 1908. What, no power outages in a hundred years? Bosh. When it comes to municipal brag, I prefer such as lowly Hutto’s claim that it is the Hippo Capital of Texas with, almost certainly, the largest concrete hippo in the world today–Henrietta, by name, weighing in at 14,000 pounds–not to mention diverse others.
