Don't Mess With The Best

Law Enforcement in Harris County Texas has zero tolerance for looters. It just won't happen here. Some of Sheriff Thomas's finest are actively searching for a passel of looters in the Wal-Mart store off F.M. 1960 even as I type and they won't rest until all the culprits have been rounded up and hauled to the Inmate Processing Center. I applaud both their attitudes and their skills.

Come to think of it, now is as good a time as any to say how proud I am of the Houston and Harris County power base that worked seemingly effortlessly with FEMA and The Red Cross and Metro, etc. I was impressed with all facets that planned and executed the evacuation and particularly the way no one was trying to pass the blame if plans did not go as smoothly as hoped. I feel that is a talent learned through experience, intelligence and maturity. How easy it is to whine and finger point and deny personal responsibility these days. You-know-who in N.O. comes instantly to mind. I believe that the unspoken, or perhaps not spoken to the media, agreement was that our guys and gals were going to bend over backwards to show the world that Texans know how to get the job done right! And darn if they didn't do just that!
