Regarding "Massive lines form across Texas over weekend for water distribution in wake of winter storm" (Feb. 22): I am writing this from my home that was damaged by the incompetence of Texas leadership. I have lived in the Houston area for 37 years and experienced colder weather than that of this recent weather. The temperature fell to 7 degrees in December 1989, but there was no mass destruction or loss of life like what has occurred with this recent storm, which brought only a couple of inches of snow.
The difference between now and then is clearly the fault of Texas' incompetent and unemphatic leadership and blind devotion to untenable deregulation policies.
