Favorite Headline from today's reading

Katrina Refugees Shoot Up Houston

First of all, I don't know who Peggy Noonan is, but her quote “City Journal is the best magazine in America.” is prominently displayed on their website to somehow validate their existence. The article isn't all bad, as it doesn't seem to paint the issues that Houston is facing as entirely due to the fact that many New Orleanians have relocated there. However, the call towards the end of the article stating that New Orleans should use some of the federal reconstruction funds towards building a top-notch justice system in order to prevent crime seems a little odd to me. Certainly our courts needed upgrading, but it would seem that improving the education system and the economy would do more to reduce crime than building bigger jails or more efficient courts.
