Sharpton & Lee on the floor of the Astrodome

Rev. Al Sharpton (R) holds a motherless child along with Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee (L) as they visit survivors of hurricane Katrina on the floor of the Astrodome in Houston, Texas September 3, 2005. President George W. Bush ordered more troops to help evacuate and secure New Orleans on Saturday as rescuers moved thousands of desperate evacuees out of the city and shut down two huge shelters that had become the scene of murder, rape and chaos. Under fire for his government's slow response to Hurricane Katrina, which wrecked one of the world's most famous cities and may have killed thousands of people, Bush said he will send in 7,200 additional active duty troops in the next three days.
Can you say "photo-op?"

As much as I hope that it isn't just a photo op for the two, it appears that they're attempting to be part of the solution instead of just complaining about the problems.

Do a Google search for Al Sharpton; there's a new article from the Houston Chronicle.
