Pay attention, it could keep YOU from being a victim.
Read what THE PEOPLE say in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram letters.
Who's to blame?
Ahh baseball. The crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the incorrect information in this article. (See: "Wash to assist New Orleans youth," Wednesday) Yes, that's right, Drew Davison, in writing about a no doubt heart-warming event for Ron Washington, failed to grasp what happened in Washington's hometown in 2005. Davison said that the "devastation" was "left by Hurricane Katrina."
Hurricane Katrina did not devastate New Orleans. Point the finger of blame in the direction of the Army Corps of Engineers, the entity responsible for the devastation that wracked the Big Easy that summer six years ago.

We cannot thank Ron Washington enough for the stadium, but it was the Army Corps of Engineers that devastated NOLA by building inferior levees and concrete walls. Please do not mislead your readers; one day they may also be victims.
