not-so-lovely rita

This doesn't look so good. At least the folks in Texas have some advantages over those in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama:
-- having seen what Katrina wrought, fewer people are likely to refuse to evacuate;
-- city, state, and Federal agencies want to make sure the piss-poor response to Katrina isn't repeated, so efforts are being redoubled; and
-- Michael Brown has retired.
