We have a Houston problem
Reuters confirms what began to look inevitable some years go: According to official data from both states, Houston's growing population is expected to exceed that of Chicago within 8 to 10 years, making the Texas city that nation's third largest after New York and Los Angeles.
Houston is projected to have a population of 2.54 million to 2.7 million by 2025, while Chicago will be at 2.5 million.
Chicago slipped from the nation's No. 2 city to No. 3 in the 1980s.
