I live in North Houston (Spring) and I have no complaints. It has good areas and bad areas but tell me a city that doesn't.

I've not been but I've got quite a few friends that are natively born and bred...not exactly lacking for salaries either and none of them liked the place....3 have moved back to Texas mind, just not Houston.

Hmmm.... this is my first poll, and I see that I actually have to vote myself in order to see how it's going! The pressure is killing me...

That's it - <idea> - I'm going to sell my vote!

Where shall we start the bidding? Who's willing to cough up an onion bhaji?

You know Karma whoring is against the rules... No onion bhajis near here, not even at the local indian restaurant (I've asked previously).

Does it count? It's a damn sight closer than everyone's who's voted in the poll so far, that's for sure!


Edit: Well, ok, on review there are a couple of exceptions, but don't let the facts spoil a good rant...

I'd send my mother-in-law there, and I'd live there over some other places simply because I have friends and family there and I know the place. BUT... I would be a whinging Austin ex-pat in Houston.
