Me neither. It could be something specific about the airport in Houston. Last time I went through customs at LAX, it was practically zero time to get through. I easily spent 100 times longer waiting for my luggage than waiting to get through customs. Um... I don't know if driving/walking across the border between Mexico counts, but if a bunch of drunk high school kids can manage it, it's just not that difficult.
