money

photos of hurricane ike aftermath.

here.

it's amazing how much the financial crisis has eclipsed news of the destruction. shoot. almost two weeks later and 250,000 residents in houston are still without water and 575,000 are without power (over 20%). and that's just houston. never mind galveston, surfside, crystal beach, etc.

of course, i don't make a habit of watching the local news. i just know i'm not hearing anything on npr.
