There is a building in the old county of Bexar, just on the other side of the square from San Fernando Cathedral, wearing a great bee hive for a crown. It’s old limestone walls look out into the market square, where Santa Anna’s great army made ready the machinery of war against the Alamo. Built to do justice, this old temple of the law has brewed Texas’ special recipe of the term for both good and ill.
