KATRINA: Dallas Residents and Reunion Arena Quietly Doing Great Work with Hurricane Refugees

This blog was the first or among the very first to report that the Dallas Reunion Arena was being opened to Katrina refuges, much as was the Houston Astrodome. Now Virginia Postrel has an update on the situation in Big D.

Houston has gotten the bulk of coverage, but it appears Dallas is more than doing its share and doing it with the city's accustomed efficiency, which is very much a product of the appreciation of private enterprise that characterizes Big D.

Full Disclosure: I may be slightly biased in these matters as I spent four great years in Dallas attending the Wilmoor Kendall Graduate Program in Politics and Literature at the University of Dallas from 1972 to 1976.
