“I've heard the big buildings are spread out far apart, so it's a bit of an urban sprawl in terms of city layout.”

“Austin > Dallas > Houston.”
-- Jennifer, Austin, TX
Patently false: That’s SUCH an Austin thing to say... At least they think we’re better than Houston though. Austin thinks we’re cool everyone!
