Former First Lady Barbara Bush, who toured the Astrodome and met hurricane evacuees Monday in Houston, may have tried to put too cheerful a spin on what has occurred in the last week.
“Almost everyone I have talked to says, `We’re going to move to Houston,'” she said in remarks to National Public Radio’s “Marketplace.”
“What I’m hearing is they all want to stay in Texas,” she said. “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 is working very well for them.”
Yeah, I’m sure getting to sleep on the floor of the Astrodome with 20,000 other people is like Christmas and the Fourth Of July rolled into one.
