CNN covers the Colonias and the Census

Why CNN put this out on July 5, 2011 is a mystery to me. I was somewhere in the background during this meeting. What is not stated in this story are the efforts to use neighbors to convince neighbors to fill out the census or the other efforts to reach out to the pockets of residents most likely to not return the census. Ah, the census, fascinating tool yet forever inaccurate – not just in the colonias but also in the inner city.
