    NYC construction workers went to Mexico to help. My youngest son went with them. They also gave blood. He works with iron and steel and is a welder and can put together construction crains

    Good for them. Especially in Puerto Rico and Mexico, the devastation is so widespread that it will takes many years to recover. Houston will probably be well on the road to recovery in six months, simply because it still has an economy and a tax base.

    Right I spent my honeymoon in Puerto Rico. It would rain once a day then clear up like it never happened. I found a pretty good Italian restraunt there.
