  1. NPR’s doing a series of stories on Houston’s urban form. It’s not our geography, but it’s a mainstream audience talking about a planning issue (golden opportunity).

  2. Don’t get all bent over shape over the guns on Amtrak thing. They did it before 9/11 and they still do it on planes. If people want to take the train to their hunting or shooting competition, I say the more the merrier. I’m sure half of Amtrak passengers are already packing heat anyway, so I don’t see the need to discourage law abiding gun owners from riding the train.
