After I saw your post, I checked Google Maps' satelite view of the neighborhoods. Indeed, they look like very nice areas to live. I'll have to take a drive down there one day--after I win the lottery (gas).

If the residence listed as being in Terrell Heights is the place I think it is, it would actually be a large estate just outside Terrell Heights.

I drive down FM1560 every morning and afternoon and there is a house around the Braun intersection that has the sprinklers on in the morning and the afternoon 7 days a week.

Their grass is a bright dark green while everyone else's grass is brown or gone by now.

I wonder how much water they use or why they can't conserve.

Showers for 12000 inmates a month?

It's actually a fairly clean place....maybe washing down of cells?

Every cell has a sink and toilet. Every inmate has little else to do besides flush the toilet.
