jabbor gibson for president

Boing Boing links to this story about Jabbor Gibson, an 18-year-old who commandeered an abandoned bus, stuffed a hundred people onto it, and drove seven hours straight from New Orleans to the Houston Astrodome. He'd never driven a bus before.

Kid might get in trouble for "stealing" the bus. He says "I don't care if I get blamed for it as long as I saved my people." One of the passengers said of Gibson's courageous act, "If it weren't for him right there, we'd still be in New Orleans underwater."
