Follow-up question: Do you know what's the not-so-best thing about Houston and its people? Getting your car broken into at 2 a.m.

Mayor Annise Parker used Twitter to put a smiley face on the attempted burglary of her daughter's car in Montrose early Friday. (The tweet just went up today, so apparently it took a while to come up with that smiley-face reason.)

The attempted burglary of the unlocked(!) car was broken up by a Good Samaritan, but the suspects got away.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
