"It seems like some have never had to make choices or decide for themselves."

This is a very interesting article concerning evacuees looking for work in Texas. Some interesting quotes, aside from the one above:

"Time has long since passed for the able-bodied people from Louisiana to either find a job, return to somewhere in Louisiana or become Houstonians" --U.S. Rep John Cluberson, (R) Houston

He then adds: "You have to make an effort not to have a job in Houston"

Nothing like tolerance and understanding from your elected officials.

"I cannot help to wonder if (the unemployment) has anything to do with the uniqueness of the community. It seems like some have never had to make choices or decide for themselves." --Ayodele Ogunye, Job Counselor

Sheriff puts strain on race relations

Who says that the northshore isn't a welcoming community?

Jack Strain: "Now I don’t get into calling people names and all that fact, but if you’re gonna walk the streets of St. Tammany Parish with dreadlocks and "Chee Wee" hairstyles, then you can expect to be getting a visit from a sheriff’s deputy."

Thanks to a reader for the tip on the story.
