Rita Educating


For hurricane news-junkies, the Houston Chronicle is doing a bang-up job tracking the coming storm; here's the full coverage page, a staff blog, and a "citizen journalism" group blog by Houston residents. Other newspaper websites worth a look: the Corpus Christi Caller Times (where you can learn that "Rita Doesn't Stop Bingo"), the Beaumont Enterprise, Galveston's Daily News, and The Port Arthur News. Also worth a read is Metroblogging Houston; other suggestions welcome.

And of course the Times-Picayune, America's Newspaper of the Year (for my money), is the best place to read about the ongoing tragedy in New Orleans.
