Poor Texans are going to suffer the most in Harvey, thanks to state politics

By Tawny Tidwell

My place has, so far, stayed relatively dry. But I have had to step out to lend a folding ladder to a friend, who drove a circuitous route to borrow it to fix his gutters, and lessen the chances of water cascading into his home. Other friends of mine are stranded on the second floors of their homes, crossing their fingers that waters don’t rise; many more are on their roofs awaiting rescue or already in shelters.
