Austin bypassed

As has been widely reported, the recent runaway bride of Georgia had planned to skip out to Austin, but changed her mind in Dallas, whence she continued to Las Vegas and then to Albuquerque, where her flight ended. Shouldn’t the Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau be looking into why she scratched Austin off her list?

And today’s Wall Street Journal contains a feature entitled “Metropolitan Magnet,” on the national trend of building condos atop Whole Foods establishments, supposedly to the benefit of both the real-estate developers and of WF. Miami and San Francisco already enjoy this amenity, and there are at least a dozen more reported to be in the pipeline at various locations around the U.S., but not Austin. If Austinites are the usual and customary WF experimental subjects, why have we not seen this here?
