I am surprised Houston did not make the list; it is so humid here, and hot that everyone perspires just getting to and from their cars.

At least ELP has low humidity, so the perspiration evaporates and cools you off, not here, it just stays and you literally end up dripping wet.

All the article means is that people in ELP have dignity when it comes to their body odor, and take care of it, unlike other cities I've been to.

Lastly, perspiration is a very good thing; the only bad thing is the odor that comes with it, but very healthy, and detoxifies the body as well.

Trying to tear down El Paso again muhnay? That was a 2004 report. For 2008, El paso did not even make the top ten...that went to Houston, San antonio ,Dallas, Phoenix..

Get your facts straight...you do a nice job of contributing to City-Data..this one was a bust...and not appreciated.

Miner72,

Obviously there must be history between you and Muhnay... I did not think he was bashing El Paso at all. 'Sounded to me just like idle chatter, what these boards are about.

There is nothing negative about this post. If you recall correctly I lived in Mississippi on the coast and loved it.. I am happy to see the climate change here.. make El Paso Greener and lusher, its a good thing in my eyes.

HookTheBrotherUp, I have my fan base.. they come out every now and then and try to twist what I say.. its all good. No Animosity from me.

And Miner72, I don't have to tear anything down, El Paso does a fine job all on its own. But I have to say that I have been more supportive of the city and even tried to paint it in a better light.

Read the article from the Wall Street Journal..El Paso is building itself into a great place and El Paso has a great future. Every city has its ups and downs. El Paso is on the up and going higher than anyone could have ever imagined.

It has always been a good town. It will be a great city soon...very soon.

At least here, the sweat evaporates very quickly -- a natural kind of air conditioning. Here 100 degrees doesn't feel nearly as bad as 90 degrees does in humid places.

I have.. even commented on it here in this forum.

So your saying El Paso is not already great?

And I think your gonna be eating them words.. growth does not equal better. I have seen great small towns that were fantastic, turn to crap because of growth. El Paso has a long way to go Mentally, before it becomes this mecca you see. Not saying it can't happen.. just don't see it yet.. and not in our recent future.
