Wife and New Orleans Update

As I mentioned in a post the other day, my wife has been assigned to help in the New Orleans relief effort. Interestingly, she's been assigned to Austin.

Now I have to say, if you are going to be assigned to something like this, could you beat Austin? I know she's working long days but she's received strict orders to go see Dale Watson play while she's down there and James McMurtry as well.

She's working out of Austin assessing places to put up temporary housing for refugees. It's a month since the hurricane and FEMA has still not even started this process. Government during the W era at its worst right there.
