A City's Shame: Inflatable Gorillas
The Houston City Council, having solved every other conceivable problem -- be it Ike-related or not -- is now tackling the important issues.

The city wants to ban the giant blow-up animals that dot used-car lots all over town, because apparently those things are all that keeps us from being a world-class city.
We here at the Press have been tackling this issue for months. If by "tackling" you mean putting together a slide show.
Hey, isn't that how Jacob Riis got things done?
