Not mentioned is what happens to Texas when there is no more oil....

....and just what is that.

oh, I think you forgot that Texas houses 6 of the top 50 companies in the US, they are the largest exporter (state) in the US, leads the nation in cotton, goat products, and sheep, major player in both defense and military, home to many High Tech firms (Dell, EDS, Compaq, etc) - known as silicon prarie, Entertainment - growing in the movie industry and music industry, home to Clear Channel, Blockbuster, and Cinemark, Healthcare - Texas Medical Center in Houston is the largest in the world, specialized Cancer and Burn centers, not to mention energy, banks, tourism, etc. and we also have oil.
