Saving the Astrodome, Houston really is creative, Florida beating Houston at express lanes, and more

Lots of smaller items backlogged:
    "I sometimes, half-seriously, call Houston the Land of the Lotus Eaters, full of people who are continually high from a cocktail of affluence, affability, and comfort."
    Finally, a couple of quick thoughts on the silly Rodeo and Texans plan to demolish the Astrodome and replace it with a pretty lame park.  First, here's a great book excerpt on the history of the Astrodome, which makes a compelling case for why it should be saved.  And here's a great new option posted by John to the Save the Astrodome Facebook group: a high-tech ski mountain!  Considering how many Houstonians fly to the Rockies every winter, I think it would be a big hit year-round and should be able to pay for itself when you consider the insane prices of lift tickets.  Can somebody in Judge Emmett's office reach out to these guys?...
