    I never really knew Texas was a high cost-of-living state. There's no income tax there.

    Perhaps Newspaperman was not referring to cost of living, but to quality of living.

    I didn't go to college to eat ramen noodles every night... If I wanted that lifestyle I would have dropped out of high school.

    Texas is very affordable in every sense. That being said, Baytown is an absolute pit. I know nothing about the job, though.

    Baytown is a refinery town, smell and all. Close enough to Houston that you won't feel isolated, although I wouldn't expect Houston pro sports to be part of this job. If you want to see a pro game, expect it to be on your own time and dime.

    The NHRA rolls into Baytown each year. It's one of the quickest quarter-mile strips on the circuit.
