All you Houstonians whohave been bitching
about that New Orleans riff-raff that came here after Katrina, prepare to feel shame.

Here's the announcement:
Mayor Ray Nagin, joined by leaders of the New Orleans hospitality community, will extend an invitation to Texas residents and anyone else seeking safe shelter in advance of Hurricane Ike, in return for the hospitality the Houston community showed New Orleanians in the weeks and months following Hurricane Katrina.
