Oil Companies more compassionate than FEMA?

2:24 p.m.
PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) — Residents of Port Arthur, Texas, say they know who to thank for help in the wake of Hurricane Rita — and it's not the federal government.

City leaders say local oil companies pitched in with badly needed food and supplies. They say the federal government just threw paperwork at them.

In fact, city officials say they couldn't have made it through those first few days after the storm if the oil companies hadn't helped.

Port Arthur's mayor says the next priorities are getting utilities — including water and sewer services — restored. Utility crews from as far away as Arizona and Pennsylvania have been trying to repair telephone and power lines.
Yes dear reader, it has come to this pass. Huey Long spins in his grave.
