Some more of the $2 billion in BRAC construction coming online probably had something to do with that.

BRAC suspense was 2011. Most should have been opened for occupancy already. Now we have all these shiny new buildings that will be empty if sequestration goes through.

What's that all about? Losers in Boerne and New Braunfels gobbling up all the San Antonio city services? That bears explanation...

People move further and further out perpetuating urban sprawl, but still want to be near a major city, using the roads, parking, buildings, etc. But it is a never ending cycle because as the roads get better, wider, and more efficient people waste less time driving, but then they still want land and want to move further and further out from the city. I just don't like the sprawling nature of cities.

So, because you personally do not like urban sprawl, anyone that lives outside the city and commutes in is a loser? Pretty narrow minded, don't you think.
