On Monday, Houston was hit hard with torrential rains and flooding, especially the northwest side of town. Our City Council finally approved a capital improvement plan that has been a year in the making! A year!! This divine plan was triggered by the devastating flood in June 2001 (in which I lost my entire car!). And it should have been in place before now. If you read the article, you’ll see that the City fathers are pleading poverty. And blaming their reluctance to go forward on a doubtful economy. Okay, yeah, blame September 11 for EVERYTHING.
