Whoopie doo, the state is giving Fort Bend County more money to build levees.

Well, get out there, pilgrims, and buy your flood insurance. You only have a short time before the water comes. Or, sell your home and buy a new one (what, you like your home?....Too bad) that will be protected by the new levee.

In the past few years, I have had friends that live in Richmond stay in my guest house for up to six months waiting for their home to be repaired after the recent floods.

It was the same home they had built 40 years ago and which had never been flooded.

They told me they had watched the levees being built for the new housing developments in their area, but thought nothing of it. Now they know.

Oh, and you old-timers that have been living in Richmond for 50 years, get your tail to the retirement home and make room for the young.

Soon the water will be downtown, but by then the current administration will be retired in the Texas Hill Country and Richmond will be but a memory.
