Funny you mention this. Texas might be the first exception to the rule,
as The Woodlands is now being referred to as a "township" and this is
the first time that I've seen the term used within this state. I learned
this when passing a bus for The Woodlands Express (which previously had
been running under the auspices of some other agency).
