RE: What side of Houston do you live on?
He won't have to wait that long - overdevelopment in this area is resulting in major new flooding. Right now there is a big local fight over the golf course that is at the heart of the Clear Lake City development. The owner wants to sell it for building lots. Those against it show studies saying the increased building will be beyond the storm drainage systems limits and will affect the whole area. IN addition, a number of metereologists believe a permenant low pressure area is being formed over the Houston area due to massive heating of the atmosphere by refinery operations and heat reflection from concrete. This in it itself may cause more flooding.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
