Poor and Stuck in Houston

This is one of the saddest things I've read about Hurricane Rita. Unfortunately it's not surprising, given the incredibly low priority Texas places on helping its most vulnerable citizens -- and those who are strangers in our land, here to work jobs that our citizens won't take to earn money to support their families in places that don't have opportunity. These are the least of these our brothers and sisters, and I am ashamed that we would leave anyone behind in the face of such a storm. Even if it has turned east.
