NPR's Scott Simon talks with Texas Judge Brad Stevenson about "Old Rip," the top tourist attraction in Eastland, Texas. "Old Rip" was a horned toad. He was placed in the cornerstone of the county courthouse in 1897. As legend would have it, he was found alive in that same cornerstone some 31 years later.
