Even the Chron takes a shot at the NYT for the Houston hit piece. The Chron is routinely derided for its Houston cheerleading, but they got it right in this piece. I like they way they wrapped it up, too:
After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, the world was generous with its support and sympathy for New York. The decision by the editors of The New York Times to publish an article sneering at Houston as it reels from a devastating flood and business reversals in the energy sector betrays an unbecoming, unperceptive snobbery from which most Houstonians -- even the most outlandish residents -- are blessedly free.
