Perhaps fearing a siege on the names Davy CrockettJames Bowie and William Barret Travis, the state of Texas asked for and received more time to decide whether or not to block a move to trademark the Alamo.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office gave the state 90 days more to decide what it might want to do about a request by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas to trademark "The Alamo," according to an Associated Press story this afternoon.

The Daughters of the Republic have been the caretakers of the Alamo since 1905 and have looked for ways to generate revenue to support the state's most famous historic site. The group is asking for a trademark under which to create and sell an official line of Alamo merchandise.
