required reading: reports from inside the astrodome

Reports from inside the Astrodome
What it is: a transcript of interviews with evacuees inside the Astrodome.
Via boingboing.

"While much of the news sounds very dire -- and nobody will argue this is a bad situation for the evacuees, no matter how well it is run -- many of the people in the Astrodome complex were in very good spirits and were quick to offer praise of the people of Houston. There are plenty of issues that need to be discussed, but the evacuees are keeping the area very clean and equilaterally said they were happier to be in the Astrodome than stuck in the Superdome or elsewhere in New Orleans."
