HOUSTON TO HELP KATRINA VICTIMS

The Houston Astrodome -- once dubbed the "Eighth Wonder of the World" -- will soon become a wonderful and welcomed contrast for approximately 25,000 displaced Hurricane Katrina victims, who have been enduring insufferably horrid conditions at the New Orleans' Superdome. Soon they'll at least have air-conditioning, working bathrooms, potable water, food, a secure roof over their heads, and medical care. They'll also have, most assuredly, the open-arms friendship and goodwill of a city well-known for those caring qualities. Makes me proud to be a Houstonian.
