I know, but you are cherry picking stats because Houston is huge.
Houston is ~13% park land
NYC is ~20%

To the people who see this as a good thing:
Universities are bloated with things they don't need. LA has too many schools. Politics are a bitch. However, stripping away money isnt going to exclusively trim fat. Some of that fat will stay and we're going to lose a lot of muscle. That's how it work...

False. Drug related homicides are a big chunk, but people kill each other over plenty of other stuff. Plus you can't legalize all drugs without ill effect, nor an you expect career criminals to hang up their cleets afterwards.
The solution is to legalize and regulate some drugs. Then attack the ...

Dude the NS doesn't deserve the racist reputation it gets. Most people are generally accepting. However, if you lean racist, you're probably going to pick a place like mandeville over Nola. And when you add those bad apples up, you get a more racist community. It's noticeable to people who spend a l...
