More Good News

Like many other people, some friends of my uncle lost everything in Katrina.

My uncle has offered them a house to stay in, so they're coming up here.

My uncle also managed to get their son enrolled, tuition-free, for the rest of the semester at a really good K-8 school in the area.

It's stuff like that that they need to put on the news. Like local hotel owners charging only $25 a night for rooms for evacuees. Like the local school system gearing up to take as many children as possible. Like the city of Houston opening its arms and saying, "What, 300,000 more people? Come on in!"
