A Book that says Houston Is Worth It, even after Ike
As the first anniversary of Hurricane Ike approaches, there's a new book that shares the words and pictures of Houstonians who hunkered down and rode out the storm. The book is called, simply enough, "IKE." It's published by a local organization called "Houston. It's Worth It.," a group of folks who want to focus on the more positive aspects of the city, rather than the heat, traffic, sprawl, and pollution. The organization's Dave Thompson is one of the co-creators of the book. He says the intention isn't to tell the story of Ike from a journalistic perspective, but from a community perspective. David Pitman sat down with Thompson and asked him to explain what he means by that.
