Just thought you might want to update that bit about Enron field and the Astros.

I would sincerely love to edit this entry, but I can't edit it once it's been *edited*, if you know what I mean.

Also the bit about public transport: Metro has been around for awhile, plus the new Light Rail system.

I dunno, I think the article's point on transportation is valid. I've lived in Houston for several decades and never used Metro buses (except for event rides like the Rodeo, and I still had to drive to the Park and Ride) or even been on the Light Rail (ONE route, about five miles long). Compared to, say, London, its really true that "Houston has never made a full implementation of public transportation." Really unfortunate, since with the plague of cell phone drivers the traffic has become even more frightening. I avoid driving into the main part of town unless I really have to, but in London, I felt like I could anywhere and never rented a car.
