    We non-Texans are bustin' proud, too.

    He had 12 tumors in his lungs and two in his brain-less than a 50% chance of survival.

    Must be something about U.S. riders:

    Greg Lemond becomes the first American to win the T.D.F., gets shot-gunned (and almost killed) accidentally by his brother-in-law while hunting, then returns to win the Tour two more times.

    I thought that constituted "having seen it all" until Armstrong.

    As JPaul says-"Feckin' Amazing".

    come on, JPaul

    as possibly the most knowledgable member here you cannot pretend to be so naive to the fact that Texas has one of the highest number of executions in the u.s.

    Napoleon Beazley&#39;s government executed him on 28 May 2002 for a murder committed when he was aged 17. If he lived in China, or Yemen, or Kyrgyzstan, or Kenya, or Russia, or Indonesia, or Japan, or Cuba, or Singapore, or Guatemala, or Cameroon, or Syria, or almost any other of the diminishing number of countries that retain the death penalty, Napoleon Beazley would not have received the death penalty. But he lived in the United States of America, a rogue state as far as capital punishment is concerned. His government believes that it is above the fundamental principle of international law that no one be subjected to the death penalty for a crime, however heinous, committed when he or she was under 18 years old. As a result, the United States leads a tiny number of countries which flout this prohibition. Within the USA, Napoleon Beazley&#39;s home state of Texas - where under 18-year-olds are considered too young to drink, vote, or serve on a jury - is the worst offender.

    Texas accounts for 53 per cent (nine of 17) of such executions carried out in the USA since the country resumed judicial killing in 1977. Of the 25 worldwide executions of child offenders in the past 10 years, seven were carried out in Texas. Only Iran comes close to this, with six in the same period. In other words, while Texas has less than half of one per cent of the world&#39;s population, it accounts for 28 per cent of the executions of child offenders documented worldwide in the past decade.

    Exactly what does this have to do with being proud of an individual for overcoming insurmountable odds and than doing something incredible?
