I’ll admit it, I have never been a fan of Texas. There’s a lot of baggage there for me; Oil, JFK, Bush, free use of the death penalty. But I’m softening my position on Texas. Why? I attended a conference there for four days last week and I couldn’t say where I was ever treated with as much courtesy, friendliness and hospitality as on that trip. From the moment I landed until I boarded my flight back to Chicago, and every touchpoint along the way, everyone was very nice and respectful. Not sure I am scoping out a new place to live, but will definitely tone down my criticism and tune up my attitude. Thanks Texas.
