Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Mysteries: Why Is Houston So Much More Attractive Than NYC?: "Manhattan residents often find themselves dreaming of the paradise that is Houston, Texas. The cars; the affordable barbecue; the murders. It's a working man's promised land. But why must some people have the bad fortune to get stuck in NYC, while others live the dream by breaking free and making their way to the sweltering heart of Texas? Luckily there's a Harvard economist to explain exactly how Houston came to be so much better than New York!"

Hat tip to Mike McGruff.
