Hey Bayou City: Is it bye-you or bye-oh?

HOUSTON - Trump or Clinton? Cubs or Indians? Bye-you or Bye-oh? These are the important questions that dominate the headlines these days. OK, maybe just the first two.

Former Mayor Annise Parker is team Bye-oh. Roy Orbison and Linda Ronstandt sang Blue Bye-you.
