Thanks, guys, for the good sentiments.
Paul, no city could have coped any better with this unprecedented storm. And your posting seemed to venture into political issues e.g. what is too much and/or too little regulation. Houston is doing it right...
past attempts to impose greater centralized urban planning on Houston have been defeated by overwhelming working-class opposition every time. Those residents know something many in the urban planning world don’t. It is well past time that we start taking Houston’s success seriously.

The "past attempts to impose" wasn't my contribution.
I was extremely careful not to directly reference Houston in my NJ comments about permeability. Using that as a springboard to criticize me is poor form.
