Awesome for Houston and Texas in general. Now I am wondering how long its going to take before this turns into a Houston hate thread.

With Houstoners getting the hate, or giving it? I see both quite a bit on this forum.

As for the numbers, that is pretty incredible. I'm not sure where Texas is getting all the jobs from (we know the fed govt in DC is doing OK), but it sure looks like the economy is doing better in that state than the other 49.
