As we all come down from last night's — or should we say, this morning's — dramatic Astros victory in Game 5 of the World Series, we return to the ongoing challenges facing Greater Houston after Harvey. If you watched last night's game, you probably saw one of the architects of that effort in the front row: Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.
