Does Houston Really Need Any More People?

Last week, yet another list was released noting all of the amazing things Houston has to offer. This time around the list was released by Business Insider, an online publication widely read in the business community, entitled 18 Facts That Make Houston The Best City in America. Yeah, no joke; H-Town is being called the "best city" in the entire country - evidently backed up by facts.

On this blog, I've grabbed several of these lists to either applaud or dump on, but the real "fact" of the matter is that Houston keeps showing up on them. Like it or not, this city has become a force to be reckon with. (And we even use the word "reckon" in daily conversation.)

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
