Forget which station, but it said that FEMA agreed to take over the rent payments for 100,000 KAtrina people in Houston, instead of the expiration of the gift in March. A family was shown on in their free apartment watching TV on a brand new big screen. It made me sick to see.

That happens all the time with government assisted housing. Usually a single mom will claim no income and then get free housing, food, and medical. As soon as she is in the apartment she moves her boyfriend in who does have a job this violates every term and condition that she agreed to when she got all the free stuff but there is really no way to enforce it. Imagine what you could buy if you didn't have to pay for any of your necessities. If it makes you feel any better the TV and furniture are usually "rent to own" and not purchased outright.

I lived in Tallahasee for YEARS until I moved down here, I wish I hadn't moved and I am working on moving my family back up there. I HATE Tampa, even with Tallahassee getting worse it still is better than S. Florida IMO.

I'll be up there in February maybe well run into each other at the range

Hit me up with dates that you'll be here. I'll even buy you the adult beverage of your choice.
