Bush, Clinton Announce Katrina Relief Fund

HOUSTON -- Former Presidents Bush and Clinton got smiles, hugs and requests for autographs when they met with refugees from Hurricane Katrina -- but it was Bush's wife who got attention for some of her comments.

Barbara Bush, who accompanied the former presidents on a tour of the Astrodome complex Monday, said the relocation to Houston is "working very well" for some of the poor people forced out of New Orleans.

"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality," she said during a radio interview with the American Public Media program "Marketplace." "And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."

More black and poor people in Texas is "scary" to Babs?

Let her spend three days trapped with two kids in a flood, no way out living in whatever she can scrape out, and then maybe I'll start concerning myself with what the Queen Mum finds scary.
