Ike Update

Some Texans still living in tents after Ike - Hurricane Ike- msnbc.com: "OAK ISLAND, Texas - Truong Van Cao and two other fishermen share a cramped, muddy tent amid the wreckage of homes, including his own, destroyed when Hurricane Ike stormed across this tiny Southeast Texas town.

Seventy miles to the northeast, Bridge City retirees Ferrel and Jerry Ashby waited a month to get a mobile home from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after the storm flooded their house.

On Galveston Island, the bullseye for Ike's arrival, Roshonda Domingeaux and her family have bounced around from shelter to shelter since Ike's 12-foot storm surge destroyed her house."

I feel sorry for those people. But wouldn't Ferrel Katz make a great name for a character?

I have dibs on that one.
