ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, OCT. 16, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-Wayne Christopher plays the keys on a piano put out on the curb in Port Arthur, Texas, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, next to pews from the Memorial Baptist Church which he'd attended his whole life. The damage was caused by Hurricane Harvey a month earlier. "He's not too up on global warming, and that's a shame," Christopher said of the president he supported in November, and supports still.
