Reason Why I Love Texas #4562

We've got character. And characters.

From today's NYT:

Thousands fled the island earlier in the day in private cars or on government-chartered buses, but a few diehards insisted they would stay in their homes. One was Denise Scurry, a 46-year-old pool hall employee who was sitting on a milk crate Thursday afternoon in downtown Galveston near her two-story home, reading “Thugs and the Women Who Love Them” and sipping brandy. “It ain’t going to be nothing but wind and rain,” she said. “Everybody’s all excited about nothing.”

Ha! Good comment. I am from Southeast Louisiana, and they were hit hard by Ike. It was a surprise to many including some of my aunts and uncles who were flooded out of their homes.
