in thread Announce: HoustonTx.pm

It's always puzzled me that Houston, a city of more than
four million people, hasn't got a single bus, not
a single train, not a single gram of public
transport available to the public.

Hmmm...maybe there's a connection between people with
enough good sense to use Perl, and enough good sense to
take public transport?

    They're in the process of building a light rail from the Astrodome through the Med center into downtown. There *should* be one from downtown out to Katy, Sugarland, Galveston/Clearlake, Kingswood, and the airport and Woodlands.

    However, our friend Tom Delay has consistently blocked all funding at the federal level for rail in Houston. He's a bit of an ass.

    Perhaps I should turn him into a very small perl script.

    We do have the buses, however, even if finding the schedules and routes can be a pita.

      I remember a story from the early 90's about Southwest Airlines squashing a plan to build a high-speed rail between the big three Texas cities (San Antonio, Houston, Dallas), since traffic between those cities was a huge percentage of their business. Gotta love how the politicians are always looking out for their constituents.

    Which houston are you talking about? Houston Texas has more buses that Cops, and we have a lot of cops.

    We also have more buses than Texas has executions
