Funny, isn't a "compassionate conservative" the governor of that state?

Newsday.com - AP News: "Charles and Laura Willis sat on a blanket in a high school hallway Friday because they had nowhere else to go to get away from Hurricane Frances. With a beat-up car and no money to even board up their house, they probably couldn't have gotten there anyway.

'Believe me, if I had any money I wouldn't be sitting here. I'd be sitting in a motel somewhere,' said Laura Willis, 42, who works sporadically at $5.15 an hour cleaning up construction sites to supplement her husband's disability check.

In this depressed fruit- and vegetable-producing area, sharecropper shacks are a thing of the present. About 11,000 of Fort Pierce's 38,000 residents live in poverty, according to the Census."
Over 30% poverty. Welcome to Bush's America.
