A READER TAKES ME TO TASK for not paying enough attention to the aftermath of Hurricane Ike in Texas, and she's right. The Houston Chronicle has been doing a good job of covering that, and there's a lot of coverage from John Little. And here's the latest update from Dr. Melissa Clouthier. If you've got more stuff, please send it.
Why do hurricanes that hit Texas get so much less attention than hurricanes that hit New Orleans?
UPDATE: Another reader emails: 'If you want to discuss lack of coverage, wasn't the hurricane that hit New Orleans the same hurricane that nearly wiped the Mississippi gulf coast off the map?" Yes. Why did New Orleans get so much more attention? Is it because the media wanted to paint the Bush Administration as racially insensitive, or is New Orleans just the only place they could find on a map?
