I understand this…
On Tuesday, only essential city workers and utility personnel will be allowed back in to the city.
But if this is true, it is some reprehensible shit…
On Wednesday, New Orleans will begin welcoming back what Nagin described as “tier one” companies: retailers and other major companies who need to check on their stock and begin preparing to re-open.
How will people who were reluctant to leave or who spent 20 hours in traffic supposed to react next time a hurricane blows through? They will damn sure consider this the next time they are asked to leave their homes and possesions for the “mother of all storms.”
Fucking Ray. What a colossul fuck up. The insurrection starts Wednesday.
I saw folks leaving with kids and old ladies and everything else in the most miserable looking jalopies who are getting by out there with who knows what finances. There are poor residents in shelters all over the South and “retailers” and “major companies” are going to be given first right of entry so the profiteering can commence? Wow, he really does run the city like a business.
Is Southern Scrap one of the companies being considered for Wednesday reentry? After the danger they put folks’ property in?
Guess what? I sell folk art in New Orleans. I need to check stock and re-open.
I won’t even get into the asinine concept of enforcing this bullshit.
Take it back Ray. You and Gustav have made us suffer enough. Many of the people who voted you back in the office will be the ones who suffer most by this blatant favoring of commercial interests over the citizens of New Orleans. Do you realize you are fucking over 95 percent of the population? You deserve approval ratings in the high single digits.
