Hurricane Katrina is putting us all to the test. Some are up to the test, others aren’t. From what I read, the people of Houston are doing exceptionally well. Consider this:
Officials postponed today’s scheduled Labor Day Classic at Reliant Stadium between football rivals Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M. And they canceled Fiestas Patrias, a Mexican independence day celebration that had been expected to draw up to 50,000 to Reliant Center on Sunday.
Mayor Bill White said the situation was so dire in Louisiana and elsewhere on the Gulf Coast that the Houston area needs to do what is necessary to aid that region’s homeless.
“We’re going to kick people out who were planning to do things. This is an emergency,” he said. “If it entails somebody suing us, then OK.”
