I'm not writing a lot here about the flooding in Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states. I've posted some links to the right, of various types. I encourage people to consider what they can sensibly do to help. I visited New Orleans when I was really too young to properly appreciate the city; it would be nice to return.

I lived in Houston for a while as a teenager. It's not a city that gets a good press in the UK, and Texans as a whole do no better, but I found them friendly and kind. The people of Texas, and particularly Houston, are, in huge numbers, opening their homes to strangers and near strangers, and finding all sorts of furnishings and equipment to help people out with. Good for them.
