CNN Goes In-Depth on Houston and Katrina
It's all about us.
CNN's series Defining America has taken a long look at Houston and its absorption of Katrina evacuees.
"Houston, the sprawling, business-friendly oil city, has absorbed some of New Orleans, a compact mecca of music, merriment and food," the report says.
One of the main subjects of the report is Terrence Gasper, who was evacuated to the Astrodome and now owns a barbershop on Bissonnet near 59.
"You can't never take the New Orleans out of me," Gasper told CNN. "But I can't see myself moving back there for a long time."
