NYT Hatchet Job Update

NYT Hatchet Job Update Chron columnist Ken Hoffman gets a little snarky without actually crossing over into scorn. Well, Texas is a friendly state, after all.

Larry has been keeping track of local bloggers' responses to this piece of shinola. Here's another one for you, from the aforementioned Owen Courreges, who does a nice job of debunking the notion that Houston is all brown and no green.

Erica suggested in the comments to my post on this that Larry, Ginger and I write a letter to the NYT to set them straight. Tiffany told me she agreed with this, saying that unless a few articulate Houstonians speak up, the average NYT reader will think he or she has read an accurate report. I'll try to compose a letter in the next day or so, and when I do I'll post a copy here.
