On a serious note, the brown recluse thing is good advice, Texas has the nastiest set of critters in the US, ants that will eat you alive, snakes of every sort, deadly disease-carrying mosquitos, scorpions, etc but the worst is that fucking spider, and now that you mention it, I think the bite looks like that. Did you have anything to do with moving brush piles, or lumber, or cleaning out an old garage of some sort? You might want to see a doctor.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
