Re "Texas vs. California -- here's a reality check" (Viewpoints, Feb. 12): Thank your for letting Bruce Maiman set matters straight.
Gov. Rick Perry never did impress me and he is not doing Texas any favors by travelling to California and grandstanding. My daughter lives in Houston. She moved there because of her job and she likes it, but I prefer California because of its climate and its cultural diversity.
