The lights are on - but NO ONE is home!

China's Texas: Ordos, built on easily accessible coal. Wow.

You'll need to suffer through a minute of hum drum reporting before getting to the meat... reported by Al Jazeera - no less.

I first thought you were talking about our China, Texas.

A wide spot in the road between Houston and Beaumont.

Ride 'em if you got 'em.

They do have rice in common. In fact, the rice dryer is the tallest structure in China, Tx.

Ride 'em if you got 'em.
