  1. Amazon HQ2

    The millennials I know would love to have cars. They just can't afford them due to crushing student loan debt. Just like Houston... Nashville has bus service. Indianapolis has bus service. Raleigh has bus service. I won't go on.

    Good. Didn't want to see Bezosillionaire get any tax breaks from us.

    Different likes for different, errr, folks. I would never eat on a restaurant patio, hate the very idea. Some people love doing it. I would rather park in front than get trapped in back, but if the establishment only cares about locals, go right ahead and hide a few spots in the back and count on a walk-up crowd. Diners are fickle.
  4. Good old South West Trains. Definitely NOT India.

    If Amazon wants to buy Hermann Park, we should sell it to them for $10 million an acre. Not one penny should go to subsidize anything Amazon wants to do here. Not one.

    Ohhhhhhh.... Canyon LakeS

    A very nice lake near New Braunfels.

    The last thing in the world Houston needs to do is replace park land with some giant office complex. No.

    Rich to me = people able to pay $3000+ a month for a 1000sf place. YMMV

    Maybe for rich people. None of these are accessible to anyone in the middle class.

    Nice big space in the V between the 59 branches. Knock down Sears and Fiesta and everything else south of Colquitt and west of Eagle. Sell it to Amazon at fair market value, and then tax the crap out of them

    I wouldn't give Amazon a dime to locate here. Tax-dodging Bezos can pay his own way.

    I believe he was just pointing out your faulty assumptions, not making light of anything. Don't get wound up about it, just come up with something more accurate.

    20.6" in 35 hours over Westfield, TX. Houston reported 5.52" of rain. Satsuma in northwest Harris County had 16.49" of rain. Bayous were 52 feet above normal. The city's pumping station was unable to supply water for a few days and the city had no protection against fire. Buffalo Bayou at Houston 54.4 feet with 40,000 cfs. Buffalo Bayou at Addicks 85.6'. 2/3 of rural Harris County was flooded. Halls Bayou was over its banks. Spring and Cypress Creeks were out of their banks. This was in December 1935. Not a helluva whole lot of concrete to the west and north of Houston then, as far as I know. 30"-50" of rain is going to wreak flooding havoc on ANY city.
