TS Allison one year later

TS Allison one year later It's hard to read about the effects of Tropical Storm Allison one year after. I was actually out of town during the worst of it, so I'm still awed by the pictures and stories of the devastation. We're still nowhere near being fully recovered.

Naturally, events of this magnitude are going to be an irresistable opportunity for grifters and shysters, such as Whitney Broach, a woman who first gained notoriety in 1993 when she put up a billboard advertising a womb for rent. Like cockroaches, people like that never truly go away.
