The verdict is in

Whatever else one may think of the Houston: It's Worth It! marketing scheme (and as noted, I rather like it), if Rick "Hostshot" Casey and Kevin Whited both think it's a good idea, it must be doing something right. Now we just have to see what Rich Connelly makes of it.

Tom and Sue give their opinions as well. Sorry if I missed anyone.

The motto is better than "Toxic Concrete Morass", but still highly questionable. But this is coming from a New Orleanian (though I've lived in Tejas). How 'bout taking a cue from one of Atlanta's past slogans:

Houston: the city that's too busy to account.

Naw, I suppose that's mean.

I guess they didn't like my suggestion:

Houston: Love it or leave it!

Ugh. You've inspired me to see what Dallas has going for it.

"Dallas. Live Large. Think Big."

I guess the goal is one last push to take the "Most Overweight City in the U.S." title?
