    Kiplinger ranks Houston as No. 1 place in U.S. to live, work and play

    To play? Call me when there are mountains to climb.

    Colorado Springs being on there immediately destroys any credibility. Fayetteville and Omaha as well...

    They obviously didn't conduct their visits in July or August. To Houston at least.

    Or in June. It is brutally hot right now and it's not even officially summer.

    I really dislike Houston. A deep, passionate bitterness that goes back to childhood.

    Houston is a nice city with an improved downtown but is way too spread out with so-so public transportation.

    Home prices are really cheap, though.

    I'd rather live there than on this godforsaken steppe, even though Molly Ivins was right when she described Houston as "Los Angeles with the climate of Calcutta."

    The women are hotter in Houston. Out here in West Texas, there are way too many women with the Wal-Mart body: broad shoulders, big bellies, wide but flat asses. Just like most of the dudes, now that I think about it. Houston women aren't as hot as Austin women but they are smokin'.

    I like the 1960s-era Houston of Larry McMurtry novels.

    I like Rice Village and any restaurant is usually a winner, but otherwise what exactly is in Houston proper?

    Houston definitely scores well with attractive women, but --having attended Texas State and living in that area -- I'm going with Austin (barely). Houston's a good city if you can deal with the heat (95 with a 105 heat index as I type this).
