Profile in Courage

Houston Mayor Bill White was presented with a "Profile in Courage" award -- for leading Houston's effort which took in hundreds of thousands of evacuees from New Orleans after Katrina.

He deserves it - along with Harris County Judge Eckels who worked hand in hand in a bipartisan manner with the Mayor, helping our neighbors who needed help in their darkest hour. Katrina caused one of the largest forced migrations in our country's history. I was there after the storm and saw the devastation. To this day, New Orleans has half the population, and a long way to go. People are still waiting for federal money.

Congrats Mayor Bill on your achievement. We need more leaders who walk the walk, not just talk the talk.
