Texas Doesn't Like Ike

But Houston will not suffer the same fate as New Orleans did during Katrina. There is no lake above Houston kept in place only by earthen levees. It's also a much bigger city, more spread-out than relatively compact New Orleans. But Galveston really has to worry -- Galveston is built on a barrier island and will take the full brunt of the storm surge and a direct hit by the storm just as it comes off the water. Landfall is predicted for about 1:00 a.m. Friday morning, local time. Good luck, Texans.

Speaking of whom, the Houston Texans host a home game against Baltimore Sunday. Shouldn't the game be, you know, moved elsewhere because it's going to happen two days after a Category 4 hurricane goes through the damn city?
