So says our utterly self aware and in-touch Mayor Clarence Ray Nagin in the latest NY Times. The article he says this in is about Karen, Squandered Heritage and we know the rest.
That this story is getting attention on outlets like NPR and the Old Gray Lady is magnificent. It will hopefully let the nation know what they seem to quickly forget when they are engaged – we the people of New Orleans are not represented by our officials. The election of Ray Nagin occurred in a city that neither resembled anything before it nor after. The dynamics and demographics of 2006 New Orleans are nothing to judge a citizenship on.
The third anniversary of the storm is coming up and just like the second, the problems still facing the city are the fault of men.
