Astrodome to house 25,000 displaced New Orleans evacuees

I am extremely pleased to see city officials opening the Houston Astrodome to house 25,000 evacuees from New Orleans.  The Astrodome, once named the 8th wonder of the world, has been vacant since a new football stadium was opened in Houston and is the perfect venue to provide shelter to a great number of people.  The human spirit is always evident after a tragedy like Hurricane Katrina and it is great to see everyone rising up to aid the newly homeless.
