having been there, i dont see how anybody could think that midland texas or even Pecos (pronounced PAYcuss) the land of oil rigs, southern accents and barbecue could be part of the west. perhaps these things arent "southern" to some, but they sure as hell arent western. its not even western on the map, more central. Even visually it doesnt look much like the southwest (not that it looks anything at all like the southeast though). i could see how one could call it a hybrid of the south and west (in pecos) but culturally its really more of a hybrid between the south and mexico (with more mexico in pecos and more south in midland). but theres nothing about it that is like arizona. and by the time your get a little bit east of dallas youll think your in louisiana already.
