Commenter Wendell pointed out some fuzzy phrasing when I was talking about shrinking counties in my post on Texas and redistricting:
Jefferson County is located adjacent to Houston's metropolitan area. You should change that statement to "not located next to one of those five largest counties" in the last section for two reasons: for continuity with the other statements to the same effect and for truthfulness.
So is Wharton (adjacent to Houston's metropolitan area). Matagorda County is actually WITHIN Houston's CSA (and adjacent to the MSA). Houston county is also adjacent to the City of Houston's CSA.
He's right. What I should have said is that the shrinking counties in Texas aren't located next to one of Texas' five biggest counties: Harris, Dallas, Tarrant, Bexar and Travis.
