Ray Nagin urging the government to "come correct"

From NYT:

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin on Thursday urged the Bush administration to speed aid to Hurricane Katrina victims, suggesting the government was not meeting its legal obligations to help the city recover.

At a news briefing, Nagin bemoaned the procedures to get money for housing and to rebuild roads and power systems. ”A bureaucratic maze,” he branded them.

While Congress last year appropriated billions of dollars for Katrina relief, the city has seen a tiny fraction of that amount. more


My heart goes out to those in New Orleans.  They still need a ton of help.

Mayor Nagin

On MLK day, Mayor Nagin had a few comments. “I don’t care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day,” he said. “This city will be a majority African-American city. It’s the way God wants it to be.” He called for a Chocolate City? What the hell? Maybe he has cracked under the pressure. That’s all I can figure. Oh, and when did God tell Mayor Nagin his overall plan for New Orleans? I’m just asking.
