As the authorities shuffle hurricane refugees from the Superdome in New Orleans to the Astrodome in Houston and other venues scattered around Texas, ordinary people from all across America are posting offers on the Web to let people stay with them. As Salon reader Sandy Harbanuk of Juneau, Alaska, reminds us, we know of a guy from Crawford who has 1,600 acres of land and a 10,000-square-foot vacation estate he’s not using just now. We wonder if he’s going to post a note on craigslist offering to take some “good folks” in.
Maybe they could help clear the brush too! There always seems to be plenty around. You could put up quite a nice tent city on 1600 acres.
