How did I miss this?

Ray Nagin, the brave mayor of New Orleans, has moved entirely out of the state of Louisiana! How did I miss hearing this? Of course, mainstream media is hardly likely to see this as breaking news, so missing it was actually fairly easy.

Ray Nagin, the man I like to call the Cowardly Lion, is still in search of a wizard to give him courage, and he has taken his quest all the way to Dallas, Texas, where he now resides. What a fine, brave man...Of course, history also records way back in 1485, after the Battle of Bosworth that usurped the throne of Richard III, that Henry Tudor, who became Henry VII and father to Henry VIII, "led his men bravely from behind." I wonder if Nagin has any Tudor blood in his veins?

Even as President Bush steps forward and states: "The Buck stops here", even as the Governor (Blanco) steps forward and says "The Buck stops here", Nagin throw up his smoke screens and defends his part in this disaster to Larry King and anyone willing to listen. Nagin still taking the stand that the fact the folks sheltered in the various New Orleans locations did not have provisions because the city is so poor. Where is all the tax revenue from the New Orleans night life? Where is the revenue from the tourist trade? Pocketed by someone. The state of Louisiana, and The Big Easy have endured many scandals of organized crime and fund misappropriations during their histories.

Before the citizens of the town take Nagin's word on everything, they need to look very hard at their 'leader'. He is still pointing fingers at everyone but himself. He is trying to inflame the people with his racist comments and speeches. He knows how effective the race-card can be in such stressful times and is cunning enough to think he can hide behind it. This ploy some reason, put me in mind of the invisible cape from Harry Potter. Nagin thinks if he holds that 'card' up his responsibilities and his failings for his people will not be seen...

Steve Subludowsky in the BayouBuzz.com says,"What’s going on with Mayor Nagin of New Orleans?The Mayor who has been color blind for three years is doing terrible post-Katrina damage." he adds,"Guess what? What the good honorable mayor is doing is creating a living hell for those who want him to take specific responsibility for what he is now doing to the City of New Orleans—blaming race and not class—especially at a time when he should be blaming himself for certain pre and post Katrina events over the past few weeks of this hurricane nuclear horror."
