Time magazine does Houston light rail

Time magazine has a story in this week's issue on exploring Houston via the light rail line. An excerpt:

A rare and exotic species has found its way to Houston of late. Known in other cities as pedestrians, the carless creatures are suddenly appearing along a vibrant 7 1/2-mile stretch of the city, thanks in large part to Houston's new light-rail system. Any new visitor to the city would do well to see them in action--and join them for a ride on the new rails and a stroll around town. .... Of course, taking a walk in Houston means leaving the air conditioning behind. You've been warned.


(Thanks to Dr. Bob Sanborn of the Harris County Education Foundation for the tip on the article.)

nice article...but I still don't understand the allure of walking around a city - it's really a pain in the a!$
