What is it about Houston that makes Washington-area media go stupid?

Today it's the Washington Independent, in an article called "The New Boom Towns."

The article is accompanied by a large picture with the caption "Dallas, home of Exxon-Mobile, has seen job growth while the economy takes a downward turn."
It shows a picture of Houston's skyline.
But maybe it makes sense, in whatever world spells ExxonMobil with an e at the end.
