Opening Arguments

No excuses

While we're waiting to see if we get any Katrina survivors here, we can see how a nearby Indiana town is handling it. About 50 evacuees are being taken care of in Marion, the county seat of Grant County, which has had some economic woes of its own. When people who can least afford it are willing to help, it doesn't leave many excuses for the rest of us.

UPDATE: The Associated Press has picked up Marion's story and is spreading it far and wide. I'm guessing residents aren't crazy about the "one of the most impoverished cities in Indiana" designation.
