  8. They should at least have a place where people can drop off food or other goods. Over all, I think they are doing a very good job at the astrodome-so far! Btw, San Antonio is going to start welcoming people from New Orleans. My guess is they will be housed in the Alamodome. Thank goodness we (San Antonio & Houston) have huge domed stadiums!

  10. You're welcome in Houston, and here's why An open letter to the evacuees who have found themselves in Houston: Welcome to Houston. You have been through a lot in the past few days, and the people of this city are eager to help ease your burden in any way we can. You are probably completely discombobulated in any number of ways, as well as worried about your home, your family and friends, your future. You needn't worry, however, about being in Houston. Houston isn't New Orleans. We know that. Nobody ever comes to Houston for the ambience. (Your big airport is called Louis Armstrong. Ours is cal

A snag with online search sites was part of the reason for the name change. Sites directed users looking for the downtown property to a hotel on the Sam Houston Parkway. "We needed to find a neutral name," said Bill Franks, president of Spire Realty, which owns the hotel. The only other significant change will be the removal of the lobby's impressive sepia-toned mural of the Battle of San Jacinto, where Ge
