After Hurricane Ike



I keep waiting for major news about a hurricane striking the nation's fourth largest city. You know if it were LA or NY or Philly...

But it's not. It's the city that major media loves to forget, and there's no bowl or dome full of the "left behind" poor...

So, if you want coverage, go to local Houston media outlets:

KHOU TV

KTRK TV

KPRC TV

KRIV TV

Houston Chronicle

KTRH Radio

Navy and Galveston here
