Would the Real Victoria Please Stand Up?

New Airline Service Headed to Victoria Regional Airport
A while back you could hop a quick flight out of Victoria Regional Airport to Houston or Austin. After a while, you could get a flight to Austin or to Dallas. Then, it was only Dallas. That's about to change as a new airline is headed to Victoria, and they will fly to and from Houston and Dalla…
Beware the Austin Roundabout
I've seen roundabouts in other cities. Most of the time, they're pretty logical and easy to adapt to. Some are awfully busy and a bit more difficult to maneuver, but for the most part, they are effective. There's a new one in the city of Austin at I-35 and 51st street and judging by t…
