Baby When the Lights Go Out....

Remember a few weeks ago when this is all you saw on TV?

Well the cities of Houston and Galveston STILL can't see that. Wanna know why? Because the majority of SE Texas is still without electricity. That's right. Day 11. But don't worry because Geraldo and Anderson Cooper got their money shots and then left. And McCain and Obama said their thing and then shut up. And some local politicians visited Texas.... but they soon left to go back to their air conditioned homes with cable and internet, while the coast as far inland as 70 miles is still powerless; literally.
What does this mean? It means that schools are canceled indefinitely. It means Houston has a curfew because there are no streetlights to light up the debris-covered roads. It means that people can't eat fresh food because they can't keep produce, meat or dairy without refrigeration. It means that they can't watch TV to see how America has neglected to cover the aftermath of Ike.
What are they reporting about? Well here's this tidbit from CNN.com: http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/Music/09/23/clay.aiken.ap/index.html
There's a shocker.

God Bless American Media!
