CNN Goes In-Depth on Houston and Katrina

Categories: Spaced City

It's all about us.
CNN's series Defining America has taken a long look at Houston and its absorption of Katrina evacuees.

"Houston, the sprawling, business-friendly oil city, has absorbed some of New Orleans, a compact mecca of music, merriment and food," the report says.

One of the main subjects of the report is Terrence Gasper, who was evacuated to the Astrodome and now owns a barbershop on Bissonnet near 59.

"You can't never take the New Orleans out of me," Gasper told CNN. "But I can't see myself moving back there for a long time."

It freaks me out that in that Reed video someone reaches into a carton of cheese with no serving gloves on!


Amazing how you completely missed the point. Truly astounding.


It's alright.I'm sure there's a sign in their restroom that says, "Employees MUST wash hands after using restroom," so... the chances of getting hepatitis are probably low to moderate, right?
