Because for the most part it's a dusty, dirty dump with nothing to see or do.



Or maybe it's the people.

Then again, that wasn't part of the criteria in the poll, lest a lot more cities would qualify.

Tex-mex and Mex-tex is good eating. Alpe just wanted to hate on Texas.

Hey Patrick what happened to ole boy on Addicks Satsuma Road? Out in Daddy's Car getting high and hitting the booze. They say a pistol fell out of the car when the crane lifted it off the houses. That is a double whamOh. Lethal vehicle and locked and loaded!
