21 things about Houston you already probably know

So it’s a little late and not very consequential now, but I just ran across a list compiled by the Chicago Tribune staff entitled ’21 Things You Should Know About Houston’.

I knew pretty much all of them (and yes I realize that’s not that huge of an accomplishment) except for:

17. U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston, reportedly once requested that a corridor in her Washington office building be closed off for eight hours so that she could meet privately with singer Michael Jackson.

19. One hundred years ago this month Houston commissioners began enforcing a city ordinance that forbids men “to make goo-goo-eyes” at ladies. Take that Ald. Natarus.

What would you add to this list?

    Thanks so much for your mention of theurbanmarkethouston.com that we had last month in the Heights. It was so successful it will now become an event 3 times a year on Heights Blvd. You can get on our email list on our web site and not miss the next one. Great junk, great prices, great time.

    See you all soon.
