Y'all, I'm on a business trip in Houston. this is my first time in the city, so I figured I'd get the "authentic Houston experience" by not driving at all and walking the half mile radius around my hotel. It's so dismal it makes me giddy. Come along with me, won't you?



Thank you for letting me come with you on your anthropological expedition. I've been to Houston many times, and I've seen the zoning thing both lead to blight like this and some of the most diverse and bizarre neighborhoods you can imagine.

You're absolutely right about the cause: it all depended on whether it was shaped by human necessity or faceless cash.
