Hurricane Rita Heading for Texas Gulf Coast

With many cars running out of gas before arriving at their destinations, evacuation presents a risk of being stranded on the side of the road during tropical storm conditions. The counterflow lane-reversals may provide some relief, but is being done exceedingly cautiously and slowly.

Projections show Hurricane Rita making landfall between Port O'Conner and Freeport on the morning of Saturday September 24. The storm has strengthened to a category 5 storm, but may weaken slightly before reaching the Texas coast. A mandatory evacuation has been issued for Galveston and flood-prone areas of Houston (download Houston evacuation zones map) | Read a press release form Mayor White. Most local schools and universities have closed until the end of the weekend. If you want government assistance to evacuate call 311 or (713) 837-0311.

If you have information to share about what people in downtown (not an evacuation area) have to contend with in order to make their decision about leaving, please add a comment here.

City of Houston Website

exitonly_9-20-05.jpgOn September 20, Vinny and I returned to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston to find out what was happening with the Katrina survivors since the Convention Center was closing it's doors as a shelter. An "Exit Only" sign on the doors made it clear that Katrina survivors were no longer welcome at the Convention Center. According to Anna Holly, Onsite Public Information Officer, it was time to "get back to business, back to conventions."

A Message to the Anti-war Demonstrators

Guantanamo. . . “shock and awe”. . . “collateral damage”. . . Fallujah. . . Abu Ghraib. Behind the words stand the cities reduced to rubble, the bodies in the streets, the hooded prisoners, the kicked-down doors, and the children—crying in terror or silently watching the humiliation of their parents. All justified by outrageous lies.

The horror grinds on, every day.

Iraq cannot wait.

Iraq cannot wait for “pendulum swings.” Iraq cannot wait for possible resolutions to set “reasonable” deadlines for hypothetical timetables. Iraq cannot wait for the 2006 U.S. elections—especially (but not only) when the major Democrats all oppose withdrawal from Iraq, and some even support more troops being sent.
