port aransas: LA Times: Texas Is The New Retirement Mecca - 11/09/09 01:30 AM
 
There is a great article in this weekend's edition of the LA Times that further illustrates how Texas is performing better than most in difficult economic times.
"Texas' population, the nation's second largest at about 25 million, is expected to be boosted this year by net inflows of at least 150,000 people from other states, said Karl Eschbach, the state demographer. Seniors are a growing part of that trend, lured by aggressive campaigns from state officials and developers."
