Just in case you haven’t been twatching twitter over the last 48 hours, there have been a whole heck of a lot of entries from people in Houston with attachments that look something like this (from my favorite rock star photographer):
Well, honestly, there are about 3 kabillion reasons why. One of them is the 6 million people who live here with us. And many of them grew up somewhere with someone who taught them how to cook. So it’s flavorful.
The truth is, despite the randomly intense heat, things grow here. Businesses. Families. Savings accounts. And every kind of plant imaginable.
I don’t know how Houston got this ugly smoggy nasty wrap. (Oh yeah I do, the multi-million dollar Presidential ad campaign that my political contribution contributed to. Thanks a lot, John Kerry.) But the truth is, it’s just kind of awesome here. And the other day The Hurricane and I took a walking photo tour to show you.
At least that’s what I keep telling myself.
