Jay Root -- FWST:

Hurricane evacuees face a new housing crisis unless the federal government abandons its plans to quit paying for their hotel rooms by Dec. 1, top state officials warned Friday.

With the holiday season at hand, Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison separately asked the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Friday to extend the deadline. A group of Texas congressmen and various city officials from Texas and around the country, where evacuees have scattered into some 50,000 hotel rooms, are doing the same.

Do you ever get the feeling that maybe...just maybe, Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison aren't best buddies? It would be normal for the senior senator and the governor to write together, but that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

*My guess is that if you don't understand what the title means, then you're over 30.
