  1. Vik your influential person in planning misled you on sidewalks and the ADA. centerpoint obtains an easement to place poles. in the instance, METRO chose to obtain the easement to widen the corridor. at this point, METRO is responsible for moving the power poles out of the old easement. since they didn't have enough money the poles remained. to blame centerpoint is wrong. the city of Houston residents are not required to build and maintain sidewalks and curbs. there are many areas that don't have them currently. if they want them, they can petition the city to build them and the neighborhood can pay for them outright OR they could get lucky with a capital improvements shot of funding. if they have sidewalks currently then yes they want citizens to maintain them.
  2. I'm actually headed there this afternoon for a mooners happy hr. dec 7 is bad. all the Christmas parties are already on peoples' calendars. sorry for not logging in more often. lot less to look at nowadays.
  3. nothing. the time I went there it was loud, not the type of place i'd want to go with a group to talk.
  4. just have to look at historical data. increased spending doesn't increase test scores.
  5. Gotta be honest winetopia is lame. At voodoo now. So far so good. Reasonably priced too.
  6. What about voodoo queen on the east side? Near milby and Harrisburg. Heard drinks are robust.
  7. Yes but eliminates certain areas of town completely. Is your last name sebelius?
  8. Since my power is out I am craving a drink. We need another happy hour before 2014! No hipster or doucheois places though. Before or after thanksgiving?
  9. For some it evidently is. Shocked me too.
  10. it means you are missing out on the world around you.
  11. you youngsters need to get out.
  12. If the Mayor got rid of the parking meters THAT would make parking easier.
  13. well I wouldn't ask an Indian...
  14. if you ask a Vietnamese I think they would disagree. These places are very Americanized to me.
  15. Too bad the 39 rail cars they bought are way behind schedule with a delivery date of TBD. http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=9303951 You are paying a Spanish company $150 million to make the cars. The first one was supposed to be here in July. Then it slipped to November. Now propulsion issues and a failed leak test are forcing METRO to say there is no scheduled date for delivery.
  16. As we've seen over the past 30 years, increasing funding for education doesn't increase test scores, it only increases the size of the stadia.
  17. please provide conclusive evidence.
