I must not be as jaded as I thought I was, because I really can't believe I just read this headline in today's Chron: Amid backdrop of war, Houston reborn in 2003.
With the chutzpah of a city that put man on the moon and built the world's first domed stadium, Houston -- an amalgamation of sprawling suburbs -- in 2003 became a city with a downtown heart.
Against a backdrop of war, Houstonians in 2003 grappled with controversies involving police and school officials. In May, tragedy struck again when 19 illegal immigrants died after they were abandoned in a sweltering, airless truck near Victoria.
If this isn't the worst example ever of the Chron mindlessly shilling for Houston, it's got to be pretty close. For shame.Posted by Charles Kuffner on December 28, 2003 to Elsewhere in Houston | TrackBack
