  1. In addition to the less centralized nature of DFW, it's interesting to look at their job centers vs. Houston's. Houston has 4 of its 7 major job centers within a 3.5 mile radius of Greenway Plaza. Dallas has its Uptown and Downtown pretty close to each other ... and then that's it. Houston is able to connect these four job centers with only parts of two lines: the western half of the University Line and the southern half (the part that's already built) of the Red Line. 11 miles on two lines connects all four job centers (assuming you leave at the part south of Holcombe). It looks like about 9

  2. Not going to happen. I found this awhile back and I emailed them asking about it. It was more of a "best use of land" type thing but nothing serious about it.

  4. oh. now i get it. interfaith was originally responsible for welcoming newcomers to the woodlands, and kept records of the woodlands population. when you are a new resident of the woodlands, an interfaith rep will come knocking on your door. it sounds as if they keep up with more than new homeowners.

Otherwise, once you've moved the lower car out of the way, lowered and removed the upper car, then you have to get out and put the first car back in the garage and finally you can get out of that car and drive off in the car you wanted in the first place. Here is the best idea going in my opinion.

  7. Reagan wanted to get to a 600 ship navy, but didn't reach it (but was close enough). That's neither here nor there, we could compare fleet size, or whatever historically until the cows come home, but at the end of the day, why does the US Navy (run by a department that calls itself defense) need 10 aircraft carriers to protect US citizens? Why does it need 14 ballistic missile submarines and over 50 attack submarines for defense? All branches of our military are far too large, it's an industry that keeps Americans employed, so in that sense it's good, but wouldn't we be better served if at le
