Observations about Houston (where we currently live).

Texas Diversity - We've lived in various places around the nation. Our current residence is in Houston, Texas. Sadly, when I visit or talk with Californians or New Yorkers, or other provincial progressives, they all have an image of themselves and Texas (or Houston) that doesn't really match reality. Especially when it comes to them imagining themselves as diverse, and the South, Texas or Houston as not as much so. In the meantime places like Wallethub (and other polls/studies) are ranking Houston as the #1 most diverse city in the nation, with more Texas cities than any other state ranking in the top 10. It is also far, FAR more "tolerant" than other places I've lived, like L.A. or the Bay Area, or places I went to school like NYC and Chicago.
