Touring the Houston Astrodome where many of Katrina’s victims are being temporarily housed, the President’s mother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, made the following comment to NPR’s Marketplace: “What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this — this (she chuckles slightly) — is working very well for them.”
