Not saying it doesn't have good food, but when I hear gumbo, I don't instantly think New Orleans either. Now when I hear beignets, bananas foster, and lucky dogs... then I think about New Orleans....

Yeah, that needs to be further south but it could just be to make room for the trashing (redundant?) of Beaumont.
On the bright side, I'd wager that the donkey shows location is fairly accurate!...

Credit to thrillist.com for this... I'd say this is about right except that the Gumbo reference needs to be a little further south, but that would interfere with the slam on Beaumont!
This map also perfectly identifies the "Houston-centric" mindset (culture???) that is pretty easy to spot... esp...

I haven't read the entire thread, but we went out Skip Bertman to River Rd and turned right to hit I-10W. Almost no one appeared to want to use the left lane. I got in the left lane and went all the way to downtown with no problem. My biggest issue was having to go back through the parking lot near ...

I will admit I had a nice time in LA for that trip. Stayed at the Riot House for history's sake, went to the Viper Room, etc. etc. However, I did NOT get to see LSU play in the Rose Bowl!

I absolutely disagree with this bill... to the point that I think limits like this should have inflationary factors built in to limit expensive jury trials.
However, the way jury duty in general is handled and viewed by the public is a joke and a travesty. We depend on the judicial system but hav...
