That’s yesterday’s Comment of the Day from Houstonian, Colleen over at Swamp Lot. She’s right, no one should ever feel the need to apologize for Houston. You don’t see it changing itself to fit in to some ideal. It’s going to remain much as it has. You adapt. You’re better for it. Visit SwampLot for more.

Lake Houston Wilderness Park Offers Cushy Camping
A-frame camping structures with screened windows and doors built upon a deck and cabins on trails—inconceivable. While most likely foreign, if not looked down on notions to the rugged outdoors seeker, it’s good news. Visit TheChron for more.
