"Week after storm, Galveston plans residents' return" by Juan A. Lozano and Christopher Sherman, Associated Press | September 20, 2008
GALVESTON, Texas - Authorities have long since finished searching for bodies on Galveston Island and the worse-off Bolivar Peninsula, though they cautioned more could be found. Authorities had blamed 57 deaths in the United States on Ike, 23 of them in Texas.
State Representative Craig Eiland, who represents Galveston, said officials are trying to gather the thousands of cattle that have been roaming free since the storm surge receded. The water that remains is so salty it could kill animals that drink it, and the grass they normally would eat likewise has been tainted, he said.
About 1.5 million customers remained without power statewide, including more than half of the Houston area. The power was back on for nearly 1 million customers in the metro region, however, and life looked increasingly normal in the nation's fourth-largest city. More stores were open, and police reopened downtown streets that they had blocked off after the storm blew out skyscraper windows.
Yup, everything is getting back to normal, so don't worry, America.
Don't worry as your country falls apart.
Good thing the economic collapse came along so the MSM could avoid this devastation. That's what Bush's legacy is going to be, whether we are talking Iraq, Afghanistan, economy, environment, anything.
Let's hope the son-of-a-bitch crawls back under that rock he came from without doing anymore damage, 'eh?
