When a riot broke out in the East Texas oil boom town of Kilgore, the governor promised to send help. When the train arrived a single Ranger got off.

"Just one Ranger?"

"Y'all ain't got but one riot."

He was all that was needed.

Nice shot and nice story. Thanks Barbarian. The shot is a little on the yellow side from the lighting. Any other shots of the statue?

I did a little posterization on this one, and it seems more obvious with a bluer cast.

Here's a shot my wife took:

Unfortunately not razor sharp but I think the colors are more accurate. All that doesnt matter. I like the statue and particularly the reason for it. Thanks Barbarian.
