World Youth Day 2014 in Houston?

According to Whispers in the Loggia:
And what's more, even further beyond Sydney Harbour, the stars have begun to align toward a US bid for the following WYD, slated for 2014, with all sights already pointing to Houston as the proposed host-city.
Wow! Finally something comes along that will allow Houston to redeem itself from the scandal that was Nipplegate '04.

In all seriousness, I think Houston would work, although I have questions about the inadequacies of Houston's public transportation system. It's 6 years away, so who knows?

I just contacted the man in charge of youth activities for the diocease of Houston about WYD21014 in Houston.

This is the text of his email:

Hello Michael!

I have spoken on many occasions with the staff at USCCB. It is my understanding that Houston is not the host for 2014. I’m not sure where this started but we have no indication about hosting. WYD will be back in the US at some point and time, but I have been told Houston is not one of the potential sites.
