2000 - 2010: A DECADE TO FORGET

How Things Went Downhill

Disasters in the Gulf of Mexico
2000: Tropical Storm Beryl
Landed in Mexico, caused little damage.
2010: The Oil Spill to End All Oil Spills
Landed in Louisiana and points east, caused untold damage.

Ben Stiller-Robert DeNiro Movie
2000: Meet the Parents
Fresh take, with DeNiro showing his comedic side.
2010: Little Fockers
Episode Three of a series, with DeNiro showing his check-cashing side.

River Oaks Shopping Center
2000: Same as it ever was
A little hoity-toity, sure, but a Houston institution.
2010: Morphing into suburbo-land
Bye-bye, Alabama Bookstop: You're traded for a West Gray Barnes & Noble. River Oaks Theatre, you're on the clock.

Galveston
2000: Unpretentious, semi-faded, laid-back Gulf jewel
With delusions of grandeur that seemed always out of reach.
2010: Ike-recovering forgotten city
With delusions of grandeur involving being turned into another Kemah Boardwalk.
