New Orleans, LA, (NOLA) needs adult leadership if it is going to have any remote chance of making a comeback. Mayor Ray Nagin demonstrates again why he does not meet that requirement. Wired reported:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Mayor Ray Nagin suggested Monday that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and other storms were a sign that "God is mad at America" and at black communities, too, for tearing themselves apart with violence and political infighting.
Exhibit #2, The New Orleans City Council:
You would think the New Orleans City Council has bigger catfish to fry than worrying about who coach's the Saints football team. AP reported:
The New Orleans City Council on Monday unanimously passed a resolution calling on the Saints to hire Doug Williams as the team's new coach.
The resolution urges both Saints owner Tom Benson and general manager Mickey Loomis to give "strong consideration to naming Louisiana's own Doug Williams as the Saints head coach or as a high level administrator within the Saints organization."
Prediction: New Orleans will be a small "French Quarter" theme park in ten years that also operates a mostly automated transfer point for Mississippi River shipping.
