why is he a hack? because he does not portray urban areas as the utopia many of this forum would believe them to be. sounds like he's pretty much on the mark. i can attest to houston being very violent.

Well I'm sure you can also attest to the fact that only certain areas of any city are very violent, while others (the majority of any city) are quite peaceful. It seems irresponsible to call an entire city "violent" when it's only a small area of the city. I can definitely say that, in my experience, most of Houston isn't violent at all - it's very peaceful. I guess I've never seen the violent parts because they are few and far between.

Apparently you've never heard his labored "creative class" argument...
