Nagin in Media Spotlight Again
Well, Mayor Nagin is in the public again. This time he is showing his support for the state and federal government in an attempt to get re-elected. I hope the people are smart enough not to re-elect him. I've never seen a person more inept. I've never seen a person take "less" responsibility for a tragedy he was so responsible for. The Hurricane Katrina killed 1,300 people along the Gulf Coast, and triggered breaches in the New Orleans levees. This was mostly due to inadequate evacuation procedures.
Nagin, who just announced a new evacuation plan for the 2006 hurricane season, is campaigning for re-election against Louisiana Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu in a May 20 runoff. He is now being seen often in the media showing his support for the Army Corps of Engineers as well as the state and local government.
