Aw, come on. The woman had just been confronted with mass confusion and suffering. She was probably shaken. She isn't accustomed to being on TV. So she didn't fine-tune every word she said.

Yes, having all those new poor people is "sort of scary" for Texas. No doubt Texas has more poor people than it can deal with already. Where is the money going to come from for medicine, housing, food and employment services for this new population?

"working well for them?" You bet. Anybody who refuses to return to New Orleans, the city where the river was high and the buildings were low,is making a good move.

The business section of my paper had a big article about how New Orleans must be rebuilt. Baloney. These poor people may have less education, but they have more sense.
