    Or my fav, the TEXAS-SHAPED BULLET on Texas license plates. My wife's
    from Texas; I'll back that one. ;-)

    Note that this bullet started out as a star U+2605, but in
    1975, in another important Act of the Texas Legislature, was
    changed to the now-famous TEXAS-SHAPED BULLET.

    Maybe the TxDOT databases would be served by having that encoded
    as a Unicode character.
