The steel frame of the remains of Big Tex is escorted by Dallas police away from its former post on International Boulevard after the fire at the State Fair of Texas, in Fair Park, Texas on Friday, Oct. 19, 2012 in Dallas. Big Tex, the metal cowboy whose slow drawl of "Howdy, folks!" made him an icon of the State Fair of Texas for 60 years, was destroyed Friday when flames engulfed his 52-foot-tall frame.
