Panama was about 90 seconds from beating the United States and advancing to a playoff against New Zealand for a World Cup berth. The fans at Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City were ready to start a nationwide celebration. And then the Americans stunned not just an opponent, but an entire country. Graham Zusi and Aron Johannsson scored in second-half stoppage time, and the United States rallied for a 3-2 win that left Mexicos World Cup hopes alive and knocked out the Panamanians. It shows you how brutal football can be. For one side thats almost there, and then the other side is back in, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. Now obviously you feel for the people. You feel for an entire country. The U.S., which clinched a World Cup berth last month, didnt use most of its regular starters, and Gabriel Torres put Panama ahead in the 18th minute in a downpour. Michael Orozco tied it the 64th minute, just as Costa Rica took a 2-1 lead at home against Mexico. Luis Tejada scored in the 83rd, putting Panama back into fourth place and the playoff berth. Mexico, which last missed the World Cup in 1990, would have been eliminated, and the Panamanians would have kept alive their chance to reach the World Cup for the first time.

The Americans heading to Texas and other cheap-living states are a bit like the mythical cowboys of our pastself-reliant, for better or worse, he writes. He acknowledges major downsides: Many Americans will have to downsize their living quarters involuntarily. People in the shrinking middle class who want to have more than one child may find the costs too high. There is no longer the expectation, much less the guarantee, that living standards double or even increase much with each generation. But its not all bad newsespecially if we take the right steps to prepare. The flood of Americans moving to Texas shows us where we need to focus our attention; what these migrants have found in Texas shows us ways many of our cities and states can improve. He says the public education system must be more rigorous, and other states also can incorporate some of the lessons Texas has to teach. He says states could deregulate building in order to lower costs (San Francisco needs to become more like Houston when it comes to zoning) and cut down on occupational licensing.
