Anything in particular you had in mind or just a bout of angst?
grocery shopping

Ah. OK. Now I get what you mean.

They must have heat on in the subways. I was sweating like crazy this morning in there.

Yesterday was worse for me. The humidity made it stifling, could feel the sweat running down my legs.

In other news, the F train is batting 0/3 so far this week in rush hour commutes that weren't screwed up.

Zero sweat issues here in Houston YTD tongue.gif


Cue the "Houston sucks because..." from people that have never been here.

I've been to the airport twice, does that entitle me to say it sucks?

fun fact: I once re-scheduled a trip to London to avoid having to go to a friend's wedding in Houston. (actual wedding was a little north ... Spring something).

Let me know if you prefer JFK EWR or LGA.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

this is will ellis' new (?) book, lots of interesting stuff - the pix of the abandoned building in the creedmoor psychiatric hospital are truly remarkable. 40+ years of pigeons roosting there has left the place filled w/ mounds of guano several feet deep. an institutional bathroom for the criminally insane would be weird enough - filled it w/ 3 foot piles of pigeon poop makes it positively surreal

I don't find Houston as a city all that bad. But transferring at the airport from an international flight is god-awful. I will go to considerable lengths to route myself around Houston. Both immigration/customs and TSA were consistently among the worst I have ever experienced, including Newark/LaGuardia/JFK.

At this point I think your problem is not one of understanding economics but one of understanding words, syntax and logic.
