We Are An Accident Victim Coming Out Of A Coma, Apparently
weighed in over the weekend withtheir take
on life in Houston after Ike.
Like an accident victim coming out of a coma, the city has been returning to life. The downtown glitters with lights, despite boarded-up windows and doors. More and more gas stations and groceries are opening.
Some people have returned to work in office jobs and at refineries, even if their clothes are wrinkled and their homes dark.
There is also plenty of talk about barbecue, and many of the people interviewed seem to be drinking beer.
So the Times has clearly got the beers and steers part down. We'll have to await further updates for the third part of the equation.
